The AirAsia long-haul charity flight in which Virgin owner Sir Richard Branson was set to appear as a air hostess is set to be postponed after the airline magnate injured himself in a skiing accident.
Branson was the loser in a bet made with Team Lotus boss and fellow airline owner Tony Fernandes that they would dress and work as a stewardess on the other’s airline if their team finished below the other in the Constructors’ Championship standings in 2010.
Branson was scheduled to fly on an AirAsia flight from London to Kuala Kumpur on 21 February.
Fernandes posted to his Twitter feed: “Update on Richard Branson flight. May be a delay as Richard injured himself skiing. Will call him today. So that’s why no announcement yet.”
A skiing accident, Sir Richard? Is that the best you could come up with?
