For many people it is just a famous, comical quote, but some passengers on a New Zealand-bound flight did not see the funny side in Wynand Mullins' T-shirt, which read "Prepare to die".
In hindsight, Mr Mullins says his T-shirt, with a popular quote from the fantasy film The Princess Bride, may not have been the best clothing choice for a flight, but he believes the reaction of Qantas was over the top.
Mr Mullins, a Kiwi living in Sydney, was one of the first to board his Auckland-bound flight on Sunday evening. While other passengers took their seats, Mr Mullins was approached by a flight attendant who said some people on board were intimidated by the words on his shirt.
The shirt had a large name tag which read: "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Mr Mullins is used to getting questionable looks and received a few while in line waiting to board, but the reaction he received on the plane was "a bit over the top", he said.
