Just wondering how the World Cup teams are managing to play in two different countries. My guess is that FIFA has hired the services of a Private Jet Airline that has positioned a BBJ737 or 319 in the region.

A few minutes back I just saw the Brazilian team flying to Cheju (or Jeju?) on a Korean MD-80 (don't know if it's 81, 82 or 83). I'd guess that JAL and KAL are both doing the commuting job.

Wrong, A, B, C and D are playing in Korea, E, F, G and H in Japan. I would guess KE and OZ do the transportation job in Korea, JL and NH in Japan. I heard the German team has flown on JAL and ANA so far.

some teams are travelling with thier own private jets.
like Saudi arabia (yes the ones who lost by 8 goals to Germany). I don't know what type of acft. they used, I do know that when they flew to Japan 3 weeks ago they invited the Senegal national team to go with them as they were already in Riyadh to play a friendly with Saudi, they didn't say no!
