Man wears “prepare to die” t-shirt on Qantas flight

The T-shirt that intimidated passengers on Qantas flight

For some travelling on an aeroplane might be a difficult task in itself so let’s hope that there were no peanut rattling passengers on a recent Qantas flight that was boarded by a man wearing a t-shirt stating “prepare to die”.

According to, Mr Wynand Mullins wore a shirt with the famous quote “Hello my name is Inigo Montoya you killed my father prepare to die” from 1980’s classic movie The Princess Bride onto a New Zealand bound Qantas flight. Mr Mullins received several odd looks whilst waiting to board and upon settling in his seat, was asked by a flight attendant to change his shirt because some people had been intimidated by the threatening phrase.

Not having another shirt to change into, the flight attendant went to look for a replacement shirt however could not find one and allegedly did not make eye contact with Mr Mullins for the duration of the flight. Mr Mullins was hoping that he would be able to gain himself a pilot’s shirt in exchange for his t-shirt.

Whilst Mr Mullins found the whole situation amusing and the reaction a little over the top, a Qantas spokesperson said “Qantas does have dress standards for passengers travelling on our aircraft . . . particularly for slogans which other passengers may find offensive or threatening.”

Would you care is someone wore a t-shirt like this on your flight?

    What an entertaining article! Wow. I’m surprised he made it on board. I know We have a strict policy in my company where a passenger is not permitted to wear offensive clothing and this could be deemed threatening by some. I find people are highly sensitive when flying these days. Xox

      Thanks! Yeh I don’t know if I would start panicking or even pick up there being something to panic about, but I guess if someone hadn’t heard of the movie or perhaps didn’t know Endlish too well then they might have not responded too well to it. What company do you work for?
