Virgin boss pays surprise visit to Virgin Australia and finds employee asleep
Branson who chronicled the hilarious encounter on his blog said he "popped into the office and airport to say hello and check in to see what the team are up to" when he caught the man sleeping on the job.
“This guy isn’t up to much at all - I caught him sleeping on the job! Wow, did he get a shock when I woke him up. He must have thought he was dreaming because he went straight back to sleep.”
He was however quick to point out that the employee, a cabin crew member, was simply enjoying some “much needed rest” while he was on standby.
Meanwhile, Virgin Australia acknowledge the funny encounter tweeting that it was "the best wake up call in the crew rest area that we've seen. Great work! :)"
