The national airlines of Australia and New Zealand have agreed to a tasty bet on the outcome of this Sunday’s Rugby World Cup final.
Air New Zealand and Qantas came to the cheeky agreement following several exchange on Twitter.
The wager entails that Qantas crew will have to wear New Zealand rugby jerseys on Monday if the All Blacks win, with Air NZ pilots required to announce Australia’s win.
The final terms of what the losers have to do was agreed after a bonkers suggestion that the losing airline repaint their fleet in the opposition colours.

Air New Zealand began the top banter on Twitter by sending the Aussie airline a photoshopped snap of a Qantas passenger plane painted completely black, with slogans including “team All Blacks” “bound in black” and “simply the best”.
Air NZ, wrote on the social media website…
We’ve been thinking about this wager. How about you paint your planes like this?
Qantas responded with their own image of an Air New Zealand plane in bright Australian gold and green, saying:
…think it needs a golden touch.
