In 2010 two Formula 1 Race team owners made a bet between each other over who would finishing higher in the Constructorsâ€™ Championship. Â The two owners were Sir Richard Branson, owner of the Virgin Formula One Racing Team and Tony Fernandes, owner of the Lotus Racing Team. Â The two friends (Fernandez worked for Sir Richard as a financial controller in the 80s) both own and run airlines and they made a bet that would go to benefit charity. Â Unfortunately Sir Richard Lost.
What was the bet? Â The loser would need to work as a flight attendant on the others airline. Â Sir Richardâ€™s airlines span the globe with Virgin Atlantic, Virgin America and Virgin Australia, while Tony Fernandez’s Asian Powerhouse, in the low cost market, Air Asia & Air Asia X.
The bet went a little bit further than that, they would have to do it in full uniform and not just any uniform. Â It would be in drag.
