Man Said, Man Did: Virgin CEO Richard Branson Becomes a Flight Attendant

Categories: World

Virgin founder Richard Branson, after losing a dispute to AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandez, stepped into the role of a flight attendant. Branson and Fernandez argued which team would finish higher in the Formula 1 Constructors' Championship - Virgin Racing or Lotus Racing. At stake was the duty to become a flight attendant on the flight Perth - Kuala Lumpur.

Branson lost the argument, and so he had to put on a red flight attendant uniform, put on makeup and fit into women's shoes. As a result, a bearded billionaire in a short skirt handed out drinks and food to passengers. And Fernandez filmed what was happening on video and laughed.
