The latest person who wants to hitch a ride on the gossamer coat-tails of supermodel Miranda Kerr is none other than Virgin boss, Sir Richard Branson.

The hellraising aviation bigwig, who arrives in Australia Monday tomorrow in preparation for Friday's inaugural flight of the VAustralia service from Sydney to Los Angeles, has the Victoria's Secret model in his sights. He wants to name one of the seven aircraft in the VAustralia fleet after her.

Calls to Kerr's reps went unanswered on Friday.

However, Kerr is tentatively booked on the inaugural flight, along with Sir Richard and local identities, including Marcia Hines and Catriona Rowntree.
