(NEW YORK) –“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
Anyone who has seen the movie The Princess Bride might find a T-shirt sporting a name tag with the quote quite amusing. But not some passengers — and at least one flight attendant — on a recent Qantas flight.
Wynand Mullins, a passenger on a Qantas flight from Sydney to Auckland, New Zealand, was approached by a flight attendant who said some people on the flight were intimidated by the words on his shirt, according to Stuff.co.nz.
“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 told the site.
Mullins didn’t have another shirt to wear though and inquired about getting the pilot’s shirt as an alternative. He claims the flight attendant went in search of another t-shirt but never returned.
“The whole experience was a bit over the top, but also a bit comical,” he said.
The airline declined to comment on the incident.
