A group of Taylor Swift fans were treated to an impromptu singalong on a recent Southwest Airlines flight after their plane was delayed for several hours.
The incident occurred on Sunday, July 17, after a flight from Denver to Salt Lake City was delayed due to bad weather. As the plane sat on the tarmac, flight attendants noticed that many of the passengers were wearing Taylor Swift merchandise.
In an effort to pass the time, the flight attendants decided to play some Taylor Swift songs over the plane’s speakers. The fans quickly joined in, and soon the entire plane was singing along to “Love Story,” “Shake It Off,” and other Swift classics.
A video of the singalong was posted to TikTok by Hannah Hazlett, one of the fans who was on the flight. The video has since gone viral, with over 1 million views.
Some people on social media have expressed amusement at the video, while others have said that it would have been annoying to be on the flight if they weren’t Taylor Swift fans.
“Not enough Xanax in the world for that,” one Twitter user wrote.
“I would have been so mad if I was on that flight and not a Swiftie,” another user said.
Southwest Airlines has since responded to the video, saying that they were “happy to see our passengers having fun and connecting with each other.”
The airline also said that they were “always looking for ways to make our flights more enjoyable,” and that they would “continue to explore ways to incorporate music into our onboard experience.”
Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the Taylor Swift singalong on a packed plane is a unique and memorable experience. And who knows, maybe it will inspire other airlines to start incorporating music into their onboard experiences.
Here are some additional details about the incident:
- The flight was delayed for approximately 3 hours.
