Former President Jimmy Carter gave fellow fliers a memorable experience last week, shaking the hand of every passenger on his flight from Atlanta to Washington.
Footage of Carter's greetings went viral after a fellow passenger tweeted video of the former president making his way down the plane aisle with a huge smile.
Greeting passengers is Carter’s pre-flight ritual. He was also spotted walking up and down the aisle on a flight en route to Washington for President Trump’s inauguration ceremony in January.
“Standard Operating Procedure for Jimmy....I have been a recipient of his graciousness in such a setting….” one Twitter user said.

Is there a more likable human being on the planet than Jimmy Carter? How people can say being president is, like, 10th on your resume? https://t.co/2Qm94ftqWW— David Hale (@DavidHaleESPN) June 11, 2017
