The Airline Version Of World Cup 2K6

Sat Jun 10, 2006 1:09 pm

Feel free to update if you wish. I'm just getting things started. Just remember to try to use the flagship carrier -- past or present -- of the respected countries. If there is no flagship carrier or if there are multiple flag carriers (such as the Untes States), use the best airline in your opinion that would closely relate to that country.  Wink

It was an own goal from paraguay's defense, the english team played very weakly today, I hope they improve in the next game.

David Beckham may claim it as his own, quite rightly so! It looked as if it was to go in anyway, so Fifa may award Beckham with the goal!

Brilliant free kick from the Real Madrid man!  Smile

England played a very weak second half, hopefuly they will improve against Trinidad and Tobago and Sweden  Smile

No problem, man! It's a true statement that this sport is the only sport that can stop wars and bring solidarity within and among countries. I've really grown to love it over the years, and since aviation is also a passion of mine, I figure why not fuse the two together.  Smile

who knocks in 1 goal during the first half.....

An exciting game with both teams taking off and playing solid offense and defense...about 70 minutes into the game, however, the team from Iran seemed to lose some fuel while the team from Mexico continued flying at full thrust...scoring two goals within minutes of each other....Viva el Mexico!!

LOL...I used it to research some of the carriers for the respective countries. I still managed to get Ecuador wrong though (somewhat -- it was a past flag carrier  Smile).

I think this will be a learning experience for me, as I will learn what airlines represent some of these countries.

That was 98' reincarnated, no doubt about it. Well, it's single elimination for the US from here on out, as only 6 points will get them to the next round. If they play as well as they did today, they'll be lucky to even score a goal and even IF someone does send a plane to pick them up, they might be stuck taking the coach home!

So would I. But considering that Varig now seems to be hanging in the balance and can go at anytime, I figured I should use Brazil's next known airline. TAM has really done well, and has solidified itself as a well-known carrier, both domestically and internationally.
