Air New Zealand has a message for all Irish rugby fans ahead of this weekend's Rugby World Cup game against the All Blacks: "Prepare for turbulence."

In anticipation of the chaos set to ensue on Saturday night in Tokyo, the airline has released a tongue-in-cheek safety video for the Irish.

Done in the style of one of the airline's unique safety briefings, Irish supporters are told: "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."
