This is so hilarious.! Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson turned stewardess after losing a bet to Air Asia Group CEO, Tony Fernandes.

Two years ago, they made a bet on their Formula 1 racing teams, each man betting his own team would finish ahead of the other’s in the 2010 Formula 1 Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi. The loser would have to serve as a female flight attendant on the winner’s airline. Richard turned out to be the loser and you can guess what happened next from the photos here….

Donning red lipstick, a flight attendant’s skirt and high heels, the maverick businessman served drinks, made intercom announcements and chatted up passengers on an AirAsia X flight from Perth, Australia, to Kuala Lumpur.

Branson served the guy who made this happen — Tony Fernandes, CEO of AirAsia Group.
This has been a real first for me but I have enjoyed the experience and I have nothing but respect for what our fabulous flight attendants do every day to keep us safe,” said Richard Branson after the flight.
