For most folks on this side of the pond, the classic Inigo Montoya quote from "Princess Bride" is an unforgettable part of childhood.

Unfortunately for a flier on a New Zealand-bound flight, fellow passengers didn't feel the same way about his T-shirt featuring the movie's most famous quip.

Wynand Mullins was on a Sydney-to-Auckland trip Sunday when a flight attendant told him some passengers were intimidated by the Mandy Patinkin-line, according to


The brown T-shirt, featuring a "Hello, my name is..." name tag graphic, continued with "Inigo Montoyo. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

"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, who told the magazine he was hoping to snag a pilot's shirt as a swap, said the flight attendant never returned after making the initial inquiry.

"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 told the site the airline had no record of the incident.

"Qantas does have dress standards for passengers travelling on our aircraft . . . particularly for slogans which other passengers may find offensive or threatening."
