‘Stewardess’ Branson to strut his stuff on AirAsia X flight

Aviation history will be made on May 12, 2013, as AirAsia X’s flight D7 237 departs Perth for Kuala Lumpur at 06:50 (WST) with Sir Richard Branson serving on board as a flight attendant.
The Virgin Group entrepreneur, Sir Richard Branson will finally shave his legs, slip into a sexy red skirt and take to the skies as a female flight attendant next month as part of a long-anticipated wager with AirAsia.
More than two years after losing a friendly bet to AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer, Tony Fernandes on who had the better Formula 1 team, a sultry Sir Richard – complete with make-up, a pair of high heels and freshly smooth legs – will strut his stuff as a flight attendant on a special AirAsia X charity flight from Perth to Kuala Lumpur. Sir Richard and Tony Fernandes had wagered on which one of their Formula One racing teams (then Virgin and Lotus) would finish ahead of each other in their debut season of the 2010 Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi, and that the loser would serve as a female flight attendant on board the winner’s airline. Tony Fernandes’ then Team Lotus finished two spots above Sir Richard’s Marussia Virgin Racing team in the final rankings.
The opportunity to join two of the most illustrious characters in aviation and make history, 35,000 feet in the sky all in the name of charity is now available for booking online at www.airasia.com from 8th April to 12 May, 2013 (or until seats are sold out) for travel on 12 May, 2013.
Fares will cost MYR1,308* (AUD399*) one way, with AUD100 from each seat to be donated by AirAsia X to the Starlight Children’s Foundation in Australia. The airline will also donate 10% of all inflight sales including duty free merchandise sold on board the flight to the foundation. Guests will also have an opportunity to make donations on board the special flight.
