Forget Doom & Gloom, Richard Branson’s Here (Get this Party Started!)

May 1, 2009 | Posted in: Airfare News,Airline News

“It’s Good to be Richard Branson.”

That was the title of a recent profile of the British genius in the late, lamented Portfolio.com – and is it ever true.

And now, the man who built the Virgin empire – which includes Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Blue and the U.S. based Virgin America (love that crazy mood-lighting) – has just brought the party to Orange County, California.

It was the usual Virgin production this week, celebrating the new O.C. routes (5 daily flights to San Francisco) – Virgin folks served cocktails while the cast of the “Real Housewives of Orange County” surrounded Sir Richard as he touted Virgin’s super deals — from $49 one-way.

And naturally, Branson appeared in red swim trunks – carrying a boogie board.

Hey – somebody has to:

“There’s something oddly calming to know that as the world deals with a global economic crisis and airline executives wring their hands over lost revenues, at least one industry leader knows how to have a good time.” -Portfolio.com
