How so, Tara? Their product is the Triple 7. And after three failures of the PW engine in a short time, they want to protect their product and have the engine problems investigated.

@Albert, you cannot convert a 30-day tourist visa into a working visa. A working visa has to be secured outside of Japan through a Japanese embassy or consulate.

There were several repatriation flights to Vietnam in the months after her visa would have expired. Seems likely that it was always her plan to overstay and work illegally.

I’ve worked in commercial aviation for 35 years, including flying international charters. Nobody flies on a charter to a foreign country without a valid passport, and must also be presented when transiting to a foreign country. Charter passengers are well screened for the proper documentation at both the departure and arrival airports. Btw, even pets have to have their paperwork. Google Johnny Depp, dog, Australia.

The ground handler provides the crew with the passenger names and passport info. This info is also sent to the destination, so they know exactly who should be on the plane. And not uncommon for the flight attendant to hold the passports until arrival. The problem is when you add someone enroute who hasn’t had clearance to arrive or doesn’t match the identity of the paperwork. So Mr. Ghosn, if detected, would have been sent back to the airport of origin...Osaka.

The Global Express has a segregated passenger compartment with access to the baggage compartment, so it’s possible the first crew saw nothing. But once they arrived in Beirut, assuming he wasn’t added to the passenger list, did he just spring out of the box with his Lebanese passport in hand? So whether they added him enroute or found out later, the crew was obligated to report it. If no laws were broken, why the need to get in the box?

@Kuzuaki, I believe the only threat to Koseman was that he wouldn’t get paid if he didn’t pull it off.
