The founder of Virgin Group had his legs publicly shaved ata cocktail event the evening before the flight, which operated from Perth toKuala Lumpur, says AirAsia.


Branson and Fernandes wagered a bet on which one of theirFormula One racing teams would finish in the best position in the 2010 FormulaOne Grand Prix season, with the loser to serve as a female cabin crew aboardthe winner’s airline.

Fernandes’ team finished two spots ahead of Branson’s teamin the final rankings.


“This has been a real first for me but I have enjoyed theexperience and I have nothing but respect for what our fabulous flight attendantsdo every day to keep us safe,” says Branson.

AirAsia X will donate proceeds from the charity flight, includinginflight sales and duty free merchandise, to Australian charity StarlightChildren Foundation. It estimates that it will raise over Australian dollar(A$) 200,000 ($199,800) for the Foundation.

A brief ceremony also took place at the low-cost carrierterminal in Kuala Lumpur, where Branson was awarded the AirAsia cabin crew graduationcertification along with the airline’s crew uniform and shoes.


AirAsia X’s chief executive Azran Osman-Rani also posted a video of Branson performing the inflight safety demonstration on YouTube.

    After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I receive four emails with the
    exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from
    that service? Thank you!

    I tend not to leave a comment, but after reading a lot of responses here Branson serves as flight attendant for a day | Asian Skies.
    I do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be
    just me or does it seem like some of the comments look like they are
    left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list of every one of your social community sites like your Facebook
    page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
