A man says he barely wore his face mask during a flight to Tenerife by making a tub of Pringles last for four hours.
Michael Richards, 41, was on his way to Spain with his family on August 25 when he came up with a plan to avoid covering up.
The entertainer, from Huddersfield, ate his crisps at the rate of one every two-and-a-half minutes to remain mask-free.
It is mandatory to wear a mask on an easyJet flight, who Michael was travelling with, expect while eating and drinking.
He said: "When you're spending four hours on a plane you think of stuff.
"And I thought the only way you don't have to wear a mask on a plane is if you're eating or drinking."

Michael, who auditioned for X Factor in 2005, added: "So I thought I'd take my time eating these Pringles to see how long they'd last.
"And I kept nibbling away, but it was hard because once you pop you can't stop, you know.
"I'd say I only had to wear a mask for about 10 minutes of the flight and that was that when I had to get up and use the toilet and to get my suitcase down.
"When we landed, I Googled how many Pringles were in a tube and it's about 100 Pringles.
"Then I divided that by the time of the flight and that's one per two-and-a-half minutes."
Michael detailed his plan on Facebook, and despite receiving praise from some, one said: "Glad I was not on that plane."
However, the criticism didn't bother him because "they're sitting at home in the UK in rainy weather and we're sunning it up in Tenerife".
An easyJet spokesman said: "Passengers receive clear communications before they travel and via announcements onboard to ensure they are aware that, in line with new guidelines, they are required to wear a face mask onboard except when eating or drinking.
"While our cabin crew will always try to be vigilant to ensure that passengers comply with the requirement to wear a mask, no issues were raised with the crew about this passenger's behaviour during the flight.
"It is the responsibility of all onboard to adhere to these measures for the health and safety of everyone onboard."
