Aquaman star Jason Momoa was spotted moonlighting as a Hawaiian Airlines flight attendant on Monday where he was filmed handing out bottles of his own brand water from a beverage cart he pulled along the aisle.
The 43-year-old Hollywood actor who is often cast for his towering 193cm tall and muscular frame was all smiles as he handed out the bottles to appreciative passengers.
Momoa looked the part of a flight attendant, wearing a sharp gray suit and black t-shirt, although this isn’t his new career. Instead, the Game of Thrones actor turned water entrepreneur was helping to promote his latest venture… the Hawaiian water brand Mananalu.
And it turns out Hawaiian Airlines is already a fan of Mananalu having signed a contract back in April with environmental activist Momoa to distribute the “infinitely recyclable” aluminum bottles on its flights.
Hawaiian Airlines expects to remove nearly 300,000 plastic bottles annually by switching to Mananalu’s recyclable bottles and are complimentary for all Premium Cabin passengers on U.S. East Coast and international flights.
The video of Momoa playing the part of flight attendant was shared by Kylee Yoshikawa whose aunt was on the flight. Kylee says Momoa had a film crew with him so expect to see more of Momoa turned Hawaiian Airlines flight attendant in the near future.
Born in Hawaii but raised in Iowa, Momoa had the idea of creating the Mananalu while sitting on a plane where he was “surrounded by single-use plastic water bottles”. He noticed that the soda cans were all in recyclable aluminum cans and had the idea of doing the same with water.
