“Look what you made us do.”

They’re tailor-made for Taylor and Travis fans.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines loaded up on new flights from Kansas City to Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII after Sunday’s Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Cheekily referencing Taylor Swift’s hit song “Look What You Made Me Do,” the airline told the Associated Press, “To our customers who are huge sports fans, look what you made us do.”

“You could say that after tonight’s games, we are in our football era, and we are thrilled to provide additional direct flights from Kansas City to Las Vegas,” the airline added.

When we say “themed,” don’t picture a 737 loaded with Swiftie merch on every seat or Kelce’s jersey on every bulkhead. Instead, the extra flights got themed flight numbers, including Flight 1989 (Swift’s birth year and fifth studio album) for flights to Vegas, and Flight 87 (Kelce’s jersey number) for flights back to K.C.

American added other SBLVIII flights numbered for other Chiefs players, too. But for millions who either really love or super hate Taylor & Travis updates, that just doesn’t seem newsworthy.
