The Sword Thief by Peter Lerangis

"The two strangers were wrapped in full-length black trench coats with collars obscuring their faces. One of them wore expensive black dress shoes; the other, jewel-encrusted sneakers. ...
An airline official shouted at them, too, sprinting to head them off. The two politely stopped and handed over their boarding passes. He examined the passes quickly, nodded, and pulled back the barrier. 'Enjoy your flight, Amy and Dan,' he said. ...
'Sayonara, suckers!' sang Ian and Natalie Kabra." (8)
The third book in the 39 Clues series, written by Peter Lerangis, begins with a scheduled flight to Japan for Dan and Amy Cahill, their au paire Nellie, and their Egyptian mau cat. However, a run-in with their cousins, the Kabras, makes the Cahill siblings miss their flight, with Nellie sitting next to the Kabras! Dan and Amy are picked up by their uncle Allistair and taken to Japan, where all three teams are forced to make an alliance to get to the next clue. An explosion underground results in one of them dying -- or does it? Join Dan and Amy as they race to be the first to find the next clue while fighting off family and Samuri ninjas in The Sword Thief.
