Virgin took British Air to court and won $945,000 in damages, the largest libel settlement in UK history.

Branson chose to invest the money back into his Virgin Atlantic team.

"It was Christmas time," he tells Raz. "It became known as the BA Christmas bonus — we distributed it to all our staff equally."

After all, the Virgin Group founder credits the success of his hundreds of companies to his employees: "The fundamental driver of our success at Virgin has, and will always be, our people working together."

"To be successful in business, and in life, you need to connect and collaborate."

If Branson had to fly with BA today, he would, he tells Raz. Though, he adds, "I might get the neighbor next door to taste the food first."
The technical fault sparked huge delays and queue at London's two biggest airports - Heathrow and Gatwick. Issues were also reported at London City. 

Pictures emerged of queues up to eight rows deep at the check-in desk of Gatwick Airport. 

Despite it only lasting 20 minutes, flights from the capital to destinations including, Athens, Milan, Malta, Malaga, Glasgow and Dubrovnik were all delayed by the fault.

Some passengers were even stuck on planes on the runway as they waited for the issue to be resolved. While others were unable to check in online for their flights and were told they had been 'departed'. 

And many took to Twitter to express their complete outrage at British Airways.
