A WOMAN has divided opinion online after she was filmed sneaking extra bags onto a flight.
Passengers frequently come up with methods to get around airlines' strict hand luggage requirements.
But this person was accused of being "rude" and "unacceptable" after she was captured hiding a number of extra bags as she was getting ready to board the plane.
Her method was very simple – she stacked the extra bags on top of her suitcase, with the handle pulled up.
She then draped her coat over the handle, with the secret bags concealed inside.
The person who filmed her, Kyle Mark (@bykylemark) was very impressed with what he had seen.

In a caption on the video, he wrote: "I know this queen had BAGS hidden behind that jacket.
"But she was bold and she was confident and she got them on in addition to the three that is already one over the limit.
"I stan a fiscally responsible queen. I stan anyone who scams airlines.
"She's just like me."

However, few people agreed with Kyle, with lots of people saying the woman's behaviour was not acceptable.
One wrote: "Nope! Unacceptable! Now someone else who legit only has one carry on is gonna have to check it at the gate because of her rude a**."
Another said: "It’s always these kind of people who also refuse to keep their personal item below the seat and fill a whole row of overhead compartments."
A third added: "WHAT are you people hauling with you on every flight. Why would you need to pack that much stuff as a carry-on?"
However, some did agree with Kyle that it was a good method.
One said: "I love everything about this and I would do the same."
The woman is far from the first person to come up with an innovative way to get extra items on board a plane without having to pay for them.
In a video on Tiktok, a user who goes by the name @freiavi showed how she removed the insides from her pillow and filled it with extra clothing.
The video was captioned: "POV you've just booked a Ryanair flight, without wanting to pay for extra luggage" shows her taking the pillow through airport security and onto the plane.
It ends with Freia dumping her smuggled clothing out onto her hotel bed.
She isn't the first person to get away with the hack either.
Anya Iakovlieva, who goes by the handle @nolimitua on TikTok, managed to smuggle a number of extra items with her on the plane by using an empty pillowcase.
She filmed herself stuffing the case with a load of clothes, then placing it on top of her suitcase.
Presumably, the cabin crew checking passengers on board assumed the pillowcase was going to be used as a sleeping aid, as Anya then showed a clip of herself hugging the pillow on the flight.
