Oh, How The Tray Tables Have Turned!

Posted November 17, 2010 by BookingBuddy

Branson Sir Richard Branson may think he has what it takes to run an airline, but can he do it in high heels and a form-fitting red suit? This may just be the Virgin Atlantic head honcho’s new uniform when he shows up for his shift as AirAsia’s newest recruit.


Branson, who also owns the Virgin Racing team, had recently bet AirAsia’s boss Tony Fernandes (owner of the Lotus F1 team) that the loser would have to be a stewardess on the other’s airline. The Lotus team was placed ahead of Virgin Racing, leaving Branson on the losing end.


Seats on a special AirAsia Kuala Lumpur to London flight will be auctioned off soon, with the proceeds going to charity. The charity will be chosen by Branson. Fernandes is said to have presented Branson with AirAsia’s fire-engine red uniform a few days ago.


If you fancy watching Branson totter down the aisle pushing a trolley loaded with snacks and drinks, then you may want to consider bidding for a seat on the flight. Just don’t be surprised if Branson offers you some ‘Coffee, tea or me?’
