That’s how ‘fare’ is pronounced in New Zealand. Perfect job of phonetic spelling, I’d say.

“On behalf of Capt. Fraidy Chickenheart, this is Freida Shivers, your fright attendant….
We’re cruising at an altitude of 36000 feet, the temperature outside is -16 degrees….
Should you check the right wing, you won’t find it because it has fallen off….
Should you check the left wing, you won’t see it because it’s burning….
Should you glance towards the earth, you’ll see three orange parachutes floating down. That’s your captain, second officer and me….
This is a recorded message. Thank you!”

Maybe the City Library across the street should be visited first, to check out how special the fear is.

“Okay, folks, we’re going to be flying directly into an aurora borealis oddly positioned over LAX now…

Or maybe we’ll climb up into this odd jet stream and see if we can break the passenger plane speed record. Remember, airspeed means nothing.”

Please take a moment to read over the flight safety instructions card in the seat pocket in front of you. Twice.

Although the author was probably Asian, this mistake is totally a product of the Kiwi accent! New Zealanders often pronounce “ear” and “air” the same, which carries through to “hear” and “hair”, “beer” and “bare”, and, of course, “fear” and “fare” in this example. For those who want to be technical about it, it’s called the “near/square” merger 🙂

To be fair, fair/fare/fear are often homophonous in New Zealand English (still funny though).
