Some people get frustrated at the prospect of a flight being oversold, knowing they might not get to their destination. Some people get overjoyed, knowing it’s a chance at a travel voucher.
And others, just, well… I don’t know how you’d describe this. A guy was traveling from Charlotte to Jamaica yesterday morning, when he decided to get undressed after finding out his flight was full.

According to witnesses, the man was attempting to get on board a US Airways flight to Jamaica early Wednesday morning.
“I seen some people running and I was wondering what they was running from and people were standing there snickering, so I walked over and [an airport employee] told me the man was angry over the Jamaican flight,” Sherry Ketchie told WBTV.
Ketchie says the man sounded very angry and was yelling.
“He had his clothes on, at that point, and then he started standing there with his arms crossed and hollering at the lady at the desk,” she told WBTV. “He stood there for a moment and then started taking off his clothes. I ain’t never seen nothing [like that] in my life.”
The worst part?
The woman says the man was standing in the concourse naked for about an hour.
Ouch! If I had to guess he was on standby and the flight was full, as opposed to him somehow involuntarily being denied boarding. Or maybe he just wasn’t happy the flight was full because he wanted an empty middle seat so he could “spread out.”
Interestingly the guy isn’t being charged with anything. The part I can’t figure out it is why the cops wouldn’t get something to cover him up when they paraded him through the terminal.
