    Thumbs up I'd be happy to / I'll be happy to

    Hi,

    There is a conversation in my book.
    If you click here you will see the context and the picture of the page.
    There is a sentence: "I'd be happy to"
    Can we use "will" instead of "would" on that part of the sentence?
    For example: "I'll be happy to"

    (I checked for it in the forum but couldn't
    find a good answer to my question)

    Thank you.

    You could, but we can use would to show politeness, so I'd stick to the original.
