This whole paragraph sounds like it was copied and pasted:
The Branson comparison
Fernandes earned him a Branson-like reputation as a maverick here in Asia. Like the flamboyant Branson, he has a knack for witty turns of phrase and getting the media’s attention.
Fernandes also isn’t afraid to deviate from established business practices. “Many Malaysian companies are top heavy, inflexible and don’t listen to employees,” he says, adding that AirAsia strives to avoid all of these pitfalls.
Six years after the start of the Asian financial crisis in 1997, the region’s economies are back on track. Missing in many countries, though, are innovative, ground-up business ventures that create jobs, competition and inspiration for other would-be visionaries. Equally absent in many cases are government efforts to draw them forward.
AirAsia is proof enough of the good that can come from governments letting business people pursue their ambitions. It’s also proof that while Asia has come a long way since the crisis, it still has a way to go.
Fernandes says he won't imitate his mentor Branson by branching out into many businesses. "Unlike Sir Richard, I am totally focused on just one thing -- AirAsia," he says.
This, too (under "Achievements and Awards"):
Recently emerged as the "Malaysian Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2006" and will carry the flag and represent the country at the world award event at Monte Carlo in May 2007. This world award event is stage to more than 40 of the best entrepreneurs from around the globe who will compete for the 7th Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award which has become the global benchmark of entrepreneurial excellence.
The first passage reads like a magazine article, the second like advertisement. I will delete them from the article. If someone wants to rephrase them, please go ahead.

Fair use rationale for Image:Fernandes.jpg
Image:Fernandes.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

I can't see that he has written any books or that there have been any published biographies written about him. If you know of any, please add the article, with refs. Thanks Span (talk) 16:31, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
