Branson's AirAsia flight confirmed for February
13 December 2010 – A somewhat smug Tony Fernandes has proudly confirmed the date of Sir Richard Branson’s flight as an AirAsia ‘stewardess’, with the Englishman having lost out in a Formula 1-related bet with the fellow airline-owning Malaysian.
Although neither scored points, Lotus were classified tenth – ahead of Hispania and Virgin – thanks to Heikki Kovalainen’s 12th place finish at Suzuka.
“It’s confirmed Feb 21st 2011,” Fernandes announces via his personal Twitter feed. “Richard Branson will be a crew of AirAsia X. London-Kuala Lumpur. Leaves London Stansted in the morning.”
