The billionaire Sir Richard Branson is back in the spotlight. Several days ago we wrote about hisVirgin Oceanic project, and now it comes quite incredible, crazy story. Sir Richard lost the bet and will work as a stewardess in an sexy red AirAsia hostess uniform on a celebrity flight between London and Kuala Lumpur on May 1.
Branson, whose Virgin group sponsors the Marussia Virgin Racing team, will finally honour his bet with AirAsia founder and Team Lotus co-principal Tony Fernandes on whose team would finish higher at the 2010 Bahrain Formula One GP. He will strut down the aisle to offer coffee, tea or any other food or beverage to Fernandes and 250 other guests, including a few celebrities, on the 13-hour flight. Tony Fernandes said: Branson will have to serve and even clean the toilets throughout the flight while wearing the high heels and the red AirAsia stewardess uniform. Branson will also have to wear makeup and shave his legs as AirAsia does not permit ‘hairy stewardesses’.
A total of 160 tickets onboard this special charity flight with Sir Richard Branson with three package options would be made available for sale on www.AirAsiaGo.com from today until April 24. The flight tickets are available at £4,500, while flights and accommodation packages start at £5,200 for a single accommodation and £5,000 for twin sharing.
Guests on the charity flight can look forward to enjoy performances by DJ Jarren C and DJ Dan Healy, who has done after-parties for names like Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake. For those who won’t be able to get the tickets have a chance to attend the charity cocktail evening in KL on May 2 for £350.
