I hate easyjet- crappyjet more like and I refuse Air France as their planes always look like they are falling apart.

Also I refuse to travel out of Gatwick- chav city, they should put something into the aircon their that sterilizes travelers so they can't reproduce!

My guess is that it was a rhetorical question and that the OP is simply annoyed that Qantas may have got their telephone number wrong. That's quite common over here so hardly a reason for not using them. Incidentally, we recently flew with Air Arabia out of Sharjah and had no complaints so why you refuse to use Gatwick seems rather odd. Many airports are much worse.

Corleone, please nip back home and get your sense of humour, unless you did actually bring it but ate it with your sandwiches.

Yeah it was a rhetorical question.
If an airline has the wrong number on its website, and their computer system is down, it kinda makes you think twice right?

Easyjet etc can't be all that bad as long as you're not flying to somewhere chavvy... Do they fly to Zurich? Paris? Italy?

Gatwick isn't chavvy- it's the passengers who are 90% chavvy. Compared to Heathrow which has the same passengers but is dirty and falling apart....

All about opinions but I find Gatwick to be one of the better UK airports. I dread landing at Heathrow whereas Gatwick always seems to be smooth sailing. Chavs are everywhere anyway.....
