Sydney - England exile Kevin Pietersen has let rip at Australian carrier Qantas, calling them "muppets" after he was refused entry to an airline lounge for wearing flip flops.

The star batsman was fuming after the incident as he travelled to Australia to play for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League after his Dolphins side lost in the final of South Africa's Twenty20 competition on Saturday.

"I suggest you tell Platinum, First Class fliers that they not allowed in your lounges with flip flops before they fly, @Qantas! Muppets!," he tweeted to his 2.88 million followers.
