United and American Airlines Add ‘1989’ Flights to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl in Honor of Taylor Swift’s Relationship With Travis Kelce

United and American Airlines are putting on additional flights to Las Vegas ahead of the Super Bowl, which will be held in the entertainment city on February 11, and both airlines have decided to have a little fun with the flight numbers assigned to these services.

Of course, one of the biggest stories happening on the sidelines of the Super Bowl is the budding romantic relationship between Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs and pop sensation Taylor Swift.

The power couple are said to have come an item last August but only made their relationship public in October 2023 at an SNL party. Since then, Tay Tay has become a regular fixture at Kansas City Chiefs games, cheering on her beau from the VIP box.

The love and adoration has been reciprocated by Kelce who has accompanied Swift on parts of her worldwide Eras tour and has even been known to make his girlfriend’s love heart hand sign after scoring a touchdown.

So what better way to assign special Super Bowl flight numbers than referencing Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce? And it turns out that both United and American Airlines had the same idea.

American Airlines has added a Kansas City to Las Vegas flight with the number AA1989, along with United, who also have the exact same flight number for a special Super Bowl service to Las Vegas.

Neither airline has been shy in admitting that the flight number references Swift’s nine-times platinum 1989 album named after her birth year.

That’s not the only fun that American Airlines will be having with its flight numbers, however, as a return flight to Kansas City has been assigned the number AA87, which is Kelce’s jersey number.

Not that the Bad Blood singer will have to worry about flying commercial. Swift is well known for her use of private jets, so much so that in 2022, she racked up 170 flights on her private jet in little more than six months, resulting in 8,293.54 tonnes of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere, according to one environmental group.

In fact, the campaign group named Swift the worst celebrity climate polluter due to her use of private jets, although could you imagine the chaos that would ensue if she tried to fly on a regular passenger plane?

Swift’s private jet will be put to good use just ahead of the Super Bowl in order to whisk her away from Tokyo, where she will be performing her Eras show and get her to Las Vegas in plenty of time to see her boyfriend in action.
