    Not Coming out because i am 100% not gay By Stelios Haji-Ioannou 4th June 2006 I am fed up with people calling me a Big Bubble Queen, what does that mean? I wish to make clear that like ashley cole i stelios haji-ioannou am definately not gay in any way at all i have had many high profile relationships with real women such as danny minogue my legal policy with regard to my legal policy. I am sure you will understand that i, stelios haji-ioannou cannot permit others to use my family name and the smear campaign i have had to endure without the certainty that i will sue the person or publication for libel due to rights in my character and family name being prejudiced. It follows that no use should be made of the stelios haji-ioannou name (or anything similar to it) and if any smear relating to gay or homosexual practices is made you will be punished to the full extent of the law. And in addition i will seek damages and compensation. the though of being gay repulses me and has brought a great deal of shame and embarrisement to my family especially as it is not true. i have nothing against gays or lesbians personally and i do not wish to offend anyone at all please do not misunderstand me i employ many gays but i will sue anyone who calls me a homosexual stelios@easygroup.co.uk

      Right Stelios, I want to grill you about two things:

      *When are you phasing out the last of the B737s and putting the A319 to EGPD? EGPE/INS has them and has since 2006 so why not ABZ? I thought that an A319 would be better than a B737 since it has better fuel economy on the shorter internal flights to LGW et al.

      *How will you feel when the real Stelios finds out that you are using his name and painting EasyJet in a very bad light and causing damages due to loss of business and reputation. I really really hope you have a good lawyer because Easy Group will crush your skull like an egg.

      If you really are Stelios, consider yourself going bankrupt since Jet2, Monarch, Thomson/TUI and BMI are more than happy to take up the “pink pound.” Maybe time to buy a B190 to get a full flight?

        I’d also like to ask you about B737 fleet cascading to other operators. Where do you propose to sell the last remaining 737s to and how will their lack of winglets affect sales AFAIK nobody will touch them with a 10 foot raked wingtip on account of their drink problem.

        If you were Stelios you’d be able to answer these very simple questions about your fleet!
