Virgin America - Boston Logan Press Conference

Sir Richard Branson Addresses the Media

Well, what can you say? Sir Richard is nothing if not a showman. To give some background on exactly what is going on here, Branson is flanked by two members of Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals as well as actress Maria Menounos (a native of nearby Medford, Massachusetts). Branson joked that he had Hasty Pudding members design his outfit for him, but maybe it was true. He also remarked that it was "really strange doing a speech like this." Trust me, it was just as strange to be listening to it.
