Richard Branson is going to put on a sexy red AirAsia female flight attendant uniform on May 1st for a 13-hour London – Kuala Lumpur flight after losing a bet with AirAsia’s owner Tony Fernandes. The two of them had gambled over whose F1 racing team would finish higher at the 2010 Formula 1 Grand Prix – Branson’s Virgin Racing or Fernandes’s Team Lotus and whoever lost would have to serve as a flight attendant on the other’s airline.
Branson’s gonna have to shave his legs since Fernandes’ airline doesn’t allow “hairy stewardesses” but he can keep his beard though. He’ll be serving meals and drinks to Tony Fernandes and 250 other passengers. Besides, this is not the first time that Branson would be dressing as a woman. He wore a white wedding dress for the launch of Virgin Brides in 1996 which doesn’t exist anymore.
Both airlines bosses came up with the idea of a party in the sky with live music and entertainment. A total of 160 seats are being sold for a charity of Branson’s choice at £4500 (about $6300) each and he’s being positive about the stunt since he’ll be able to get some promotion for AirAsia X in which he has a 20% stake.
Anyone interested in joining the party can book one of the three packages being offered on [AirAsiaGo.com].
