From a well known airline site. Fortunately the programmers got it right and just the error message doesn't make sense.

It would work, but a fair number of mobile numbers in Singapore start with - you guessed it 9... So even if I wanted to give my correct no I couldn't!

Wait, you mean is it not a typo? I thought that when I saw the picture!

Really you can't type a 9? :shock:
