LOS ANGELES: USA - News Release

An Australian woman thought she was in serious trouble when an air hostess got upset over some Australian slang during a flight in the US.

"Fair dinkum," was the slang used. (Meaning OK, No problems)

Sophie Reynolds when told there were no pretzels for her to eat, said "Fair Dinkum"

The next thing Ms Reynolds knew, the crew had demanded her passport to note her details. The 41-year-old from Queanbeyan was stunned to find three uniformed officers waiting for her in Pittsburgh.

"They said: 'You swore at the hostess and there are federal rules against that'," Ms Reynolds told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "And I said: 'I did not swear at the hostess, I just said, 'fair dinkum'."

A SkyWest spokeswoman said "aggressive behaviour" had been witnessed on the flight, but no charges were filed.
