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.
