El Al

Approximate Vintage: 2014

Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Nice vines grow around the outside of this bag. I wish I could tell you what the Hebrew says, but they left off the vowels.

I used to have my screen settings of blue on green. It drove my eyes crazy, just like this bag does. Same as other bag except has a serrated, toothed top.

One other thing to notice is the French. There is NOT an extra 'E' on this bag between LIQUIDES and ET, as there is on the other serrated bag.

It's all about the details!

ELAG Generic

With all the many bags ELAG manufactures, there was bound to be a generic sporting only their name, but it took me until I had 1000 bags to find one.

Elvira in 3-D!

Received From: David Kraus
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Tan
This bag seems to have been released by either Elvira, Channel 9 (who knows where), or 7-Eleven stores. Ostensibly, Elvira was being broadcasting the 1954 smash hit (?) "The Mad Magician" in 3-D. The bag is so evanescent, it urges you to tune in 4 PM Sunday, May 23, but who knows what year or what region of the country?

Emirates

Approximate Vintage: 1998

This bag has that Casablanca type mystique, trying to capture gaudy, but not too overstated culture on an Air Sickness Bag.

Same as other Emirates bag, except has ELAG bottom. This bag has that Casablanca type mystique, trying to capture gaudy, but not too overstated culture on an Air Sickness Bag.

Hey, Kilroy is back! Notice that they guy on the bag probably isn't Arabic because he has only 1 hair. This character joins the Barf Bag character hall of fame alongside KLM's Dusty and TWA's doggie.

Kilroy is still with us, but now he's accompanies by a web site. Furthermore, the bag is no longer manufactured by ELAG, but rather by Nivagold in Thailand.

Kilroy is still with us, but now he's accompanies by a web site. Furthermore, the bag is no longer manufactured by ELAG, or Nivagold in Thailand, as the bottom of the bag is blank.

Kilroy is gone, but the web site remains. Instructions in English, Arabic, and Icons.

Baggist Extraordinaire, David Shomper notes that this bag says "Solid Litter Only" and "No Liquids", which would seem to obviate puking in the sack.

Emirates

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Received From: Marc de Kort
Print or Image Color: White, Gray
Background / Bag Color: Gray
Emirates goes to pictograms but in a brilliant move, also includes text just in case someone can't figure out what a picture of cans and bottles with a check-mark next to them is supposed to mean.

Also, the front is in Arabic, not English which I guess means that there are now actual people from the UAE who fly.

Empire

Approximate Vintage: 1983
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Red
The Empire did not last through the 80s.

Enter Air

Cool bag with a big exclamation point on the tailfin from this Polish Airline. Torba Chorobowa sounds like something the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would say.

The airline is in all small letters, the instructions are all in capital letters.

Eram Air

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Matthias Koch
Print or Image Color: Pink
Background / Bag Color: White
The Arabic on this bag looks like English script that reads "low I go".

Estonian Air

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Christian Funch
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Has "Rosenlew 5198" printed on the inner fold (not shown). The logo looks kind of like a broken wing.

Smaller than other Estonian Air, but does NOT have "Rosenlew 5198" printed on the inner fold (not shown). The logo looks kind of like a broken wing.

Find the Cheapest Fare exhorts this Internet enabled bag. I love the rasterized mouse pointer at the lower right.

Ethiopian Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Lou Mazel
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is very busy for my tastes. It's got the Sri Lanka lion on the bottom. Inexplicably, the back warns: "Please, no refuse!" Yes, refuse in a barf bag would be a travesty.

Ethiopian Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2003

Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Ethiopian decides to do away with its logo completely opting for a bunch of generic words. Too bad. Hailie Salasie would roll in his grave.
