A father who was flying with his three-year-old daughter Halloween night is being called 'Dad of the Year' on social media.

According to one passenger on the flight, Stephanie Kahan, a man flying from Boston to San Francisco Monday handed out notes and treats to all of the people travelling with him and his little girl.

In the note, the father explained his three-year-old was sad she was missing out on the chance to go trick-or-treating, so he asked if people would help make the night special for his daughter.

"My 3-year-old daughter, Molly, was bummed that she wouldn't be able to go trick-or-treating they year due to this flight... so I decided to bring trick-or-treating to her.

"If you are willing, when my little donut comes down the aisle, please drop this in her basket.

"You'll be making her Halloween! If you're unwilling, no worries, just pass the treat back to me. Thanks so much!"

Kahan tweeted that the father then led his daughter, who was dressed as a doughnut, up the aisle so people could hand out the treats he had provided.
