While I appreciate everyone in Japan will be routing for the home team, including companies like JAL, there is a missed opportunity for JAL to show support for all players and that winning is not the most important goal. (The words in Japanese show support just for the Japan team) . Think of how nice an impression it would make if a player from another country saw the plane voicing support for all the countries participating.

Can't be that bothered when they've selected one of the oldest members of their fleet. Their cross town rivals ANA have Star Wars liveries on their newest aircraft.
