Richard Branson in Drag for Air AsiaApparently, Sir Richard Branson lost a bet to fellow airline CEO Tony Fernandes from Air Asia Group. The upshot? Branson in drag. Passport Magazine reports:

The bet was that if Branson’s Formula One team ranked lower than Fernandes’, then Branson would work an Air Asia flight as an Air Asia stewardess, which means he’d have to comply by all the rules that Air Asia flight attendants have to. “…He has to comply with our grooming standards and that includes shaving his legs, donning high heels, putting on some makeup and slipping into the AirAsia’s famous red uniform,” Fernandes said.

Branson has finally set the date – May 12th – for a flight from Perth to Kuala Lumpur. And you can still get tickets for just $420!

Hands down my favorite story of the day. 🙂
