Video and Photos: Richard Branson Turns Female Flight Attendant After Losing Bet To AirAsia Owner Tony Fernandes
The Virgin Group founder and British billionaire had his legs shaved, put on lipstick and squeezed into a red skirt to honor a bet by serving as a flight attendant Sunday on an AirAsia trip from Perth, Australia, to Malaysia. Mr Branson and Mr Fernandes had a bet on whose teams would finish first in the 2010 Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi.
Donning a uniform, he served passengers on an Air Asia charity flight from Perth to Kuala Lumpur.The plan was that the loser had to dress as a female flight attendant and serve passengers on board the winner’s airline. But he earned a reprimand from AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes after he deliberately dumped a tray of orange juice on Fernandes’ lap.
