Tossing an unlikely bouquet

Richard Branson may have made marriage headlines in 2007, performing ceremonies on his Virgin Atlantic 0%2C%2C5698802%2C00.jpg and Virgin America affiliates and even wining a place in Modern Bride magazine’s list of trendsetters, but this year may not hold the prospect of love for the never-shy and rarely blushing Branson. His North Atlantic premium venture may or may not get off the ground, and his major stake, Virgin Atlantic Airways, barely escaped a potentially crippling strike by its flight attendants. The ‘industrial action’ was called off only after Sir Dicky sent them a blunt if not positively snarky letter telling them that if they didn’t like the pay and conditions at Virgin Atlantic, they could just go work elsewhere (“For some of you, more pay than Virgin Atlantic can afford may be critical to your lifestyle, and if that is the case you should consider working elsewhere.”) But the 0%2C%2C5698760%2C00.jpg funmeister’s doing very well at his Virgin Bride stores and has even taken a reservation for a wedding on his proposed Virgin Galactic commercial space venture, he says. Branson is in fact ordained in a less-than-mainline denomination, his spokeswoman says. So at least we know that in 2008, despite the airline industry’s ups and downs, Branson will have something to hold on to, in sickness and in health, for better or worse.

    Ri Branson is the smartest airline Boss ever. Thats why VAs Marketing expenses are much lower than BAs.

    Its like you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot approximately this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you just could do with a few p.c. to power the message home a little bit, however instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
