Richard Branson Became AirAsia Stewardess Sir Richard Branson continues to surprise us. During celebrity flight between London and Kuala Lumpur on May 1, he will work as a stewardess in an sexy red AirAsia hostess uniform. But that’s not news, we already reported about that. The latest news is that the passengers will pay at least $650,000 for the honor to shave Branson’s legs.
The bidding will take place before the AirAsia flight leaves Stansted airport north of London, and the winner will be invited to shave Richard once he’s unveiled as an AirAsia flight attendant. A charity auction will be held at Putrajaya Marriott Hotel & Spa in Malaysia after the flight on May 2 as part of the same charity drive. Items on sale include personal items from the two airline magnates, as well as signed parts from a Team Lotus race car.
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’.
