Sir Richard Branson shaves his legs and dresses up as a flight attendant on an Air Asia Flight after losing a bet with Air Asia chief executive Tony Fernandes.

PERTHAUSTRALIA (MAY 11, 2013) (AIR ASIA HANDOUT) -  Sir Richard Branson honoured a bet he lost to Air Asia chief executive Tony Fernandes, by shaving his legs and dressing in a female flight attendant uniform to wait on passengers on a charity flight from Perth to Kuala Lumpur.

"Can I please present this to my latest flight crew, Sir Richard Branson," said Fernandes, handing Branson his uniform and giving him a kiss on the cheek.

The Virgin Group entrepreneur and Fernandes had a wager during the 2010 Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi on whose racing teams would finish ahead of the other.

The loser would have to serve passengers dressed as a female flight attendant on board the winner's airline.

Branson's Marussia Virgin Racing team finished two spots behind Fernandes' then Team Lotus.

Money raised from a portion of the tickets sold for the flight will go to the Starlight Foundation, an organisation that helps brighten the lives of hospitalised and seriously ill children and their families in Australia.
