Sir Richard Branson has said he is prepared to bet the boss of British Airways £1 million that Virgin Atlantic will not disappear within five years.


Willie Walsh, chief executive of BA owner IAG, predicted that the Virgin brand would vanish if US airline Delta succeeds in buying the 49% stake owned by Singapore Airlines.
