    Wrong t-shirt get jet ban

    Man banned from jet for Transformers T-shirt | The Sun |HomePage|News

    Lethal weapon: Brad's t-shirt


    Transformers shirt gets jet ban

    AIRPORT guards stopped a man boarding a plane — for wearing a Transformers T-shirt showing a cartoon gun.
    Brad Jayakody, 30, was shocked when he was told to change his top if he wanted to catch his flight from Heathrow’s Terminal 5.

    IT consultant Brad — on a British Airways trip with four colleagues to Dusseldorf, Germany — asked to see the security chief.

    He thought the boss would "see sense" — but he backed up the decision and threatened him with ARREST. Aussie-born Brad said: "My mate set off the alarms and was searched.

    "But then the guy told me to stop and said ‘you cannot get on the plane because there is a gun on your T-shirt’."

    Brad, of Bayswater, West London, added: "It’s a cartoon robot with a gun as an arm. What was I going to do, use the shirt to pretend I have a gun?

    "I was flabbergasted. I thought the supervisor would come over and see sense, but he didn’t. After I changed he said if I changed back I would be arrested."

    A spokesman for Heathrow operator BAA said: "If a T-shirt had a rude word or a bomb on it for example, a passenger may be asked to remove it.

    "We are investigating what happened to see if it came under this category."

    Last year Gatwick guards made a woman hand over a beef sandwich before boarding.
    Sur votre bicyclette, mate.
