Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Ireland take on the All Blacks in the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup on Saturday and Air New Zealand have decided to have a bit of fun ahead of the game.
The tongue-in-cheek video is done in the style of an in-flight safety announcement and gives Ireland a preview of what the airline thinks will be in store for them this weekend.
“Having won two out of the last three games, some Irish supporters may be expecting a pleasant journey. However, we happen to think you might be in for some upcoming turbulence,” the video begins.
Anything to add @AerLingus? 😉

With the Irish being warned they are in for a journey that will include plenty of “disappointment”.
“…Should the game go down to the wire, an oxygen mask will automatically drop down. Otherwise, please remain seated until your disappointment has come to a complete halt.”
The airline also called out Aer Lingus on social media with the Irish airline responding quite brilliantly.
Thanks for your concern, but two of our last three flights have actually been very enjoyable! Our crew is briefed, checklist complete and we're ready for take-off #IREvNZL #NZLvIRE #HomeAdvantage https://t.co/i1WrvcuxhV
