    Virgin's Richard Branson dresses as stewardess on AirAsia flight

    Virgin's Richard Branson dresses as stewardess on AirAsia flight
    May 12, 2013

    Kuala Lumpur - Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson dressed like an air hostess and served passengers on a flight after losing a bet to AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes over their Formula I motor racing teams.

    Branson performed the duties of a regular stewardess, including serving Fernandes and other passengers with refreshments during aspecial flight of AirAsia from Perth to the Malaysian capital.

    Branson, in red-hot AirAsia stewardess uniform and black stockings, was flanked by Fernandes and passengers as he departed from the plane after more than four-hour trip.

    "Richard Bransonís career in AirAsia is off to a good start ...until he spilt the tray on Tony Fernandes," AirAsia tweeted.

    Some of the ticket sales and bar bills on the flight will go to childrenís charity the Starlight Foundation.

    Fernandes, who described the 62-year-old Briton as his mentor, used to work for Branson before setting up his own budget airline.

    Two years ago the pair agreed that whoever backed the slower Formula I motor racing team would dress in drag and serve drinks on the otherís airline.

    "We both had Grand Prix teams and I was absolutely certain that I was going to win," Branson said. "Something went wrong. Of course, the drivers of that race are no longer with us." Paying the penalty took so long because of business commitments, a broken leg and arranging schedules for the Perth-Kuala Lumpur flight, he said.

    "I went to extreme lengths to avoid being here but knew that one day I had to get it over with," Branson said.

    One thing for certain he started business's from the ground level and now provides lucrative employment in 10's if not hundreds of Thousand"s for his ever growing business Empire, whatever his sexual preferences are they are very small potatoes in comparison to the good he does Worldwide . reading this article it would appear he's very much in favour of Gay couples causes ,but then again so are millions in favour of it including me and I ain't no pile driver http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lauren...b_1526280.html

    Surely the victims in this case, namely the passengers on the flight should be suing for compensation.
