    3 - VIRGIN COMPLAINT LETTER

    IN JANUARY 2009 I (OLI) WROTE A LETTER TO RICHARD BRANSON AFTER A SERIOUSLY DISGUSTING MEAL ON A FLIGHT. WITH HELP FROM TWITTER, FACEBOOK AND BLOGS IT ALL GOT A BIT OUT OF HAND. HERE'S A FEATURE FROM THE BBC 9 O CLOCK NEWS:

     

    THE MOST SURREAL MOMENT WAS WATCHING A FEATURE ON THE BBC NEWS, WITH AN ACTOR READING OUT PARTS OF THE LETTER. BECAUSE MY MOBILE NUMBER WAS ON THE LETTER, I BECAME A TARGET FOR EVERY MORON WITH MOBILE PHONE. AT ONE POINT I ANGRILY ANSWERED THE PHONE AT 3 IN THE MORNING ONLY TO FIND MYSELF LIVE ON AUSTRALIAN RADIO. A STAGE PLAY ABOUT THE LETTER IS CURRENTLY RUNNING IN MUMBAI. BY THE END OF THE YEAR IT WAS THE TELEGRAPH'S MOST READ NEWS STORY OF 2009.
