How An Orange Juice Cost Richard Branson His Job
Just in case you thought we were joking, or that it was some sort of a hoax, well, here it is:
The Virgin Group founder, British business magnate Richard Branson put on lipstick, had his legs shaved and squeezed into a red skirt to honour a bet he had lost to AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes.
The bet, as reported earlier, was over whose Formula One race team would be ranked higher and Fernandes' Lotus Racing team won over over that of Virgin..
As per the terms of the bet, Branson served as a flight attendant on an AirAsia trip from Perth, Australia, to Malaysia.
But he had his revenge by deliberately dumping a tray of orange juice on Fernandes' lap, earning not only a reprimand from
Fernandes gleefully declared after Sunday's nearly six-hour flight that Branson's skills as an attendant were "rubbish" and that he was being immediately fired.
