Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, recently lost a bet with hilarious consequences. Branson lost the bet to AirAsia top executive Tony Fernandes, on Formula 1 teams that the two moguls sponsor. The stakes: whoever lost the bet would have to serve as a flight attendant for the other's airline. Branson lost the bet, and had to serve on an AirAsia flight, dressed up in a charming red uniform.
