‘Princess Bride’ Shirt Worries Flight Crew

SYDNEY, (UPI) —  A man who boarded an Australian flight to New Zealand wearing a T-shirt bearing a famous line from “The Princess Bride” said he was asked to change.

Wynand Mullins, a New Zealand native living in Sydney, said he boarded a Qantas flight to Auckland Sunday evening wearing a T-shirt bearing a line from the 1987 film, “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die,” Stuff.co.nz reported Thursday.

Mullins said he thought the reaction from the flight crew was “a bit over the top.”

“The flight attendant said to me: ‘Are you able to remove it because some of the passengers are quite intimidated by it’. I thought it was all a bit silly. The person next to me was laughing, because they knew the movie,” Mullins said.

He said the flight attendant said she would attempt to find him another shirt, but never brought him one. Mullins said the flight attendant did not make eye contact with him for the rest of the flight.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they had someone watching me the whole time,” he said. “The whole experience was a bit over the top, but also a bit comical.”

A Qantas spokesman said the company had no record of the incident, so it must have been handled by the flight crew.

“Qantas does have dress standards for passengers travelling on our aircraft … particularly for slogans which other passengers may find offensive or threatening,” the spokesman said.
