Brazil's World Cup plans mired in delays

With just five months to go before kick-off, construction crews in major airports face danger of missing deadlines.

    Brazil has authorised nearly 2,000 additional flights during the World Cup later this year to ferry fans between venues. But a new airport terminal in Rio de Janeiro would not be even ready in time for the global sporting event. And with just five months to go before kick-off, construction crews at other airports across Brazil are in danger of missing their deadlines too.
