Orlando International Airport (MCO) recently showcased its playful side, reserving gate seats for pop icon Taylor Swift and her rumored boyfriend, Travis Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end.
In a witty Facebook post, MCO quipped, “‘I’ll be eighty-seven; you’ll be eighty-nine’ and we’ll be 407. Reserved for Taylor and Travis, who deserve to travel in fly style!” This nod to Swift’s song “Mary’s Song” had fans abuzz, with one stating, “Never in my Wildest Dreams would I have thought MCO was a Swiftie!”
Florida’s Love for the Power Duo
It seems Florida establishments have a soft spot for the duo. Before MCO’s gesture, the Florida Everblades, a minor league hockey team, reserved seats for the couple at the Hertz Arena. With Swift recently joining the billionaire ranks, courtesy of her “Eras Tour” and the re-release of 1989 (Taylor’s Version), the couple’s relationship seems to be the cherry on top of a fantastic year for the artist.
The community’s response to MCO’s post was overwhelmingly positive. Comment sections were flooded with Swifties expressing admiration, referencing Swift’s iconic eras and jesting about the famous MCO carpet. This fun engagement by MCO underscores how businesses can connect with popular culture, further endearing them to their audiences.
