There is a new ad in the banner (top right) of CO.COM and it looks like Victor (Head of OnePass) in the photo.

...but the real question is did Victor remember to bring his freedom baggie for his liquids & gels?

Victor is a Superstar

Now that Victor is a star, will we see being included in future Continental ad banners and Flash animations future OnePass Auction prizes?

As an example, for 5,000 miles, appear with an oversized bag touting CO's baggage rules in a new graphic.

That sure looks like him to me, too!

FWIW, Victor's job has changed -- he's now working in/on partner marketing.

Talking Celebrity Sighting: Victor Llana on CO Webpage

It's a small pic on the front of the CO website, but I noticed the gentleman in this pic looks very much like one of our friends at CO, Victor Llana: https://www.continental.com/web/en-U...e/carry_on.gif

I wonder if the CO marketing folks get enough volunteers to pose in these pics, or if they have to draw straws or something.

Whaddya mean? He leapt at the opportunity. Over in flyertalk.female there apparently are numerous "Did you ever meet 'Victor'?" threads going. I hear that they are hoping that Victor will next appear in a safety video, although some dissenters favor Jeffrey J. Misner instead.

FYI, I've merged the two threads that were opened on this topic.
