Southwest Airlines made a very important announcement to passengers on a flight from Las Vegas to Kansas City Monday: “Mama Kelce is on board.”

Donna Kelce, the mother of Travis and Jason Kelce, was traveling from Sunday’s Super Bowl in Sin City to Kansas City, Mo., for the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory parade, slated for Wednesday.

“You’re on a very special flight,” a Southwest flight attendant says in a video the airline shared documenting the moment. “We are carrying a VIP, a very important parent, this afternoon. Mama Kelce is on board, everybody.”

“Congratulations to her and her family and all the team over at the Chiefs. Well done, very proud,” the flight attendant adds, before going on to quote the 1986 Beastie Boys anthem “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!).”

“And also, I have one thing to say,” he teases. “Apparently, I’ve got to say, ‘You’ve got to fight for your right …’”

“To party,” the crowd, including Donna, shouts back, finishing the lyrics.

The Chiefs tight end quoted the song last year when the team won the 2023 Super Bowl and when celebrating their big win over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship in January.

Southwest captioned the post, which was a shared post with Donna, “We flew the MVP (Most Valuable Parent) home from The Big Game. We 🫶 you Mama Kelce!”

Some Instagram users expressed surprise to see the famous mom flying the budget airline.

"Couldn’t her son or Taylor Swift pay for first class or maybe a private jet???" read one comment, referring to Travis and his music megastar girlfriend.

Other comments praised the famous mom for her unpretentious ways.

"This woman does not need to fly southwest, but she does anyway. Down to earth queen! No wonder her sons are so grounded," someone wrote.

Donna shared her own photo with the pilots in the plane’s cockpit, writing, “Thank you @southwestair (and especially Cheyenne L.!) for getting me to KC for the parade!!!!”

She also posted an image of a fan sporting a T-shirt that says “In My Travis Era,” a nod to Travis’ romance with Swift, still on the international leg of her Eras Tour.

After a run of four Eras Tour shows in Tokyo that wrapped up Friday night, Swift made it to Las Vegas to watch Travis help the Kansas City Chiefs win a second-consecutive Super Bowl.

Kelce and Swift embraced on the field after the game and stayed out on the Las Vegas strip until 5 a.m. celebrating with teammates, friends, family and thousands of fans.
