The 39th president of the United States Jimmy Carter showed true class on a flight this week by shaking the hand of every single passenger on board.

In a video shared by Twitter user James Parker Sheffield, Carter can be seen approaching every row as he goes to his seat.

In the heartwarming post, a happy woman can be heard saying: “I love you Jimmy Carter” as he moves down the aisle on the flight from Washington DC to Atlanta, accompanied by security.

This isn’t the first time the classy former president has made this kind of gesture. From the looks of social media, he’s shaken hands with a fair few air passengers.

If people weren’t already in love with the man who founded the Carter Centre, an NGO which works for peace across the world, then this lovely video should seal the deal.
