Toddler brings smiles to every passenger on flight with one adorable greeting.

Air travel is often stressful and grueling these days, with overbooked flights and poor customer service as sadly regular features in the travel experience.

But one toddler is too young to let it all get him down. 2-year-old Guy Jakubowicz is still excited by the prospect of getting on an airplane and flying.

Pure joy.

According to his mom Alya, he’s so excited that he fist-bumps everyone as he goes down the plane aisle to his seat.

In fact, on a recent flight, he insisted on bumping fists with everyone, waiting patiently for each passenger.

My son on the campaign trail, attempting to win the hearts of airline passengers in the hopes of becoming the next Southwest ambassador. He is making flying the friendly skies even friendlier with one fist bump at a time! 👊🏼#fistbump #southwest #airport #airplane #raleighbound #southwestair @southwestair
