Passengers aboard an Air Asia flight from Perth to Kuala Lumpur were surprisesed to see the founder and chairman of the Virgin Group, Richard Branson, as part of the cabin crew – dressed in full high heels and make-up!

Branson was honouring a bet he made with fellow airline owner and motor-racing rival, Tony Fernandes. They had wagered on which one of their Formula One racing teams would cross the line first in their debut season of the 2010 Formula One Grand Prix.

The loser would have to serve as a flight attendent on the winner’s airline.

During the flight, Branson poured tea and coffee, served meals and made in-flight announcements and of course had to make sure that the passengers were clear about the safety features on board the jet.

Upon arrival in Malaysia he said he was relieved he had carried out the bet.
