From the Paper:

"It's quirky, fun, and indescribable from a business perspective. The story of Virgin Airlines and its founder Richard Branson are truly a "rags-to-riches" story. While gaining success in many of his business endeavors, Richard Branson never lost his sense of humor or zest for life and as a result this mentality has funneled through to Virgin as a whole and this applies to Virgin Atlantic."
