Sir Richard Branson, Flight Attendant
Yes, this is a photo-shopped image, but don't be surprised when actual photographs of Sir Richard Branson in drag do appear soon.
Branson will join Air Asia Group CEO Tony Fernandes on a six-hour Air Asia X flight from Perth, Australia to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on May 12, dressed up as a female flight attendant, making good on a bet he lost to Fernandes in late 2010.
The bet was over whose Formula One race team would be ranked higher and Fernandes' Lotus Racing team won over over that of Virgin.
Finally seats are now for sale from $399 AUD ($420 USD) on the special, one-way flight, and may be purchased online for AirAsia X’s flight D7 237 on Sunday, May 12.
$100 from each seat and 10% of all inflight sales onboard will be donated by AirAsia X to the Starlight Children’s Foundation in Australia, a charity which provides care and support for seriously ill children.
Earlier this week also, Branson was seen in a skirt — a traditional Scottish kilt for the launch of Virgin Atlantic's "Little Red" flights from London to Edinburgh. But for the May 12 event, as per the terms of the bet, in addition to the skirt, he would need to shave his legs and put on red high heels as well.
