Remember when Sir Richard Branson served as a Stewardess?

Apparently, Virgin Atlantic is eager to twist every negative situation into positive by making a good publicity stunt out of it. Remember our old post LINK. Well, I remembered this yet another publicity stunt.

The Chairman of Virgin Group Sir Richard Branson dressed as a female flight attendant and served drinks on board by Air Asia X’s flight between London Stansted and Kuala Lumpur, after losing a bet with Tony Fernandes, the chief executive of the low-cost airline.

The 1996 Publicity stunt by Sir Richard when he famously wore a wedding dress for the Launch of Virgin Bride.

The two businessmen placed a wager on whose Formula One team would finish higher in the 2010 constructors’ championship. While neither Sir Richard’s Virgin Racing or Mr Fernandes’s Lotus F1 team scored a single point in 2010, Mr Fernandes won the bet by virtue of better finishing positions.

The two bosses agreed that the loser would perform flight attendant duties on board one of the other’s aircraft. Sir Richard will be expected to wear heels, make-up and a red dress, and will be asked to perform lavatory-cleaning duties.

I think seats on board the flight were auctioned, with the proceeds going to the charity of Sir Richard’s choice.


BA offers courses in surviving plane crashes

BA is offering its frequent flyers the chance to trade in their air miles for a place on a course instructing passengers how to survive plane crashes.

Members of the British Airway’s Executive Club will be able to benefit from a four-hour session on air safety, when the scheme begins next year.

China ga3ad egooloon tara 6iyayeerna bit6ee7 :p

Anyway, Those who sign up to the courses can learn techniques to increase their chances of surviving a crash. It will cost around £125.

Andy Clubb, the BA manager running the course said: “It makes passengers safer when travelling by giving additional skills and information, it dispels all those internet theories about the ‘brace position, and it just gives people so much more confidence in flying.”


A passenger’s complaint turns him into the Airline’s food tester!

A passenger who wrote an amusing complaint letter to convey his disappointment with the food served on Virgin Atlantic has been invited by Sir Richard Branson to select the food and drinks for future Virgin flights.

I am not sure if the passenger actually took the opportunity. But in his letter, along with a couple of images of the dish attached, the passenger said that opening the lid of the main meal was like being given a “dead hamster for Christmas”.

LOL, You gotta give him credit for his creativity & sense of humor 🙂
