Argentina: Taylor Swift show postponement prompts airline to waive flight-change fees

Source: CNBC

“Like hurricanes, blizzards or wildfires, Taylor Swift is now prompting an airline to waive ticket-change fees. The popstar said she was postponing a show in Argentina’s capital scheduled for Friday until Sunday because of heavy rain, writing on X, the platform formerly called Twitter: ‘due to the weather being so truly chaotic it would be unsafe to try and put on this concert.’ The Chile account of LATAM Airlines, the largest carrier in South America, reached out to customers on X: ‘#AttentionSwifties: we know your planes changed so starting today we are updating our flexibility policy for those with flights from Buenos Aires’ for Saturday or Sunday. The Chie-based carrier said it is waiving both ticket-change fees and differences in fare if travelers can fly anytime until Nov. 17 after Swift’s show at Argentina’s largest stadium was postponed.” (11/11/23)
