Anything odd for good seems possible with Sir Richard Branson. Now, the Virgin Group head has agreed to have his legs shaved before he makes his female flight attendant debut.
Britain's Virgin founder Richard Branson lost a bet to AirAsia founder and CEO Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes on Formula One results last year. As a result, the British billionaire will board a charity flight on May 1, wearing AirAsia's red female flight attendant uniform, including high heels and make-up, said media reports.
As part of a charity auction, the highest bidder will have the opportunity to shave Richard Branson's legs at Stansted airport, London, after he unveils his AirAsia flight attendant uniform.
“Rather than shave him myself, Richard and I thought we could have a bit of fun, engage with our guests and raise more money for charity if we opened up the opportunity to the highest bidder,” Fernandes said.
The Air Asia London to Kuala Lumpur flight tickets are priced at £4,500 per person. All proceeds from the flight and Charity auction will go to Virgin Unite, a non-for-profit foundation of the Virgin Group.
