With all of the unpleasantness of air travel — full planes, cramped seats, crazy passengers and grumpy employees — we can all use a little bit of unbridled enthusiasm. And maybe it takes a small boy to remind us of the wonder of flying, starting in one city and soaring through the sky landing somewhere else. And looking out at the window along the way.
This 2 year old was boarding a Southwest Airlines flight from Kansas City to Chicago Midway on July 20th (where they’d connect home to Raleigh).
When he was 18 months old he learned to fist bump on a flight. His mother explained,
We were waiting on the tarmac and he was getting antsy so I let him run around the aisle a little bit and these guys behind us taught him how to fist bump.”
Ever since then, everyone Guy encounters gets the friendly greeting.
So boarding his flight he shared that infectious enthusiasm with his fellow Southwest Airlines passengers:
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
