Haha... I just had that question on my last exam... funny that we're talking about it here just a couple of days later.
The way you described it is basically exactly the way we were taught it. Pilots have 1000 different ways to mention that they are low on fuel, and to take note that it only means that they are approaching their fuel reserve and may not be able to accept delays, etc. I assume (maybe not correctly though) that if THIS guy (AIC111) was declaring a pan, that he was pretty low on fuel... although you never know I guess... that klm flight that declared a fuel emergency after CYYZ had the air france runway overrun and who rerouted to KSYR didn't really sound too distressed... Toronto terminal offered him Hamilton airport and he preferred continuing to KSYR since it was already programmed into his FMS... nice... and if you listen to the SYR feed, I think you can hear him asking what gate he's getting while he's on final... haha... way to keep your cool...

Talk to you in a bit,
