Finnair

Approximate Vintage: 2007

Finnair downsizes their logo for no discernible reason.

Finnair downsizes their logo again, getting rid of the pesky identifying text and leaving only a stick-figure airplane. However, they use the back as a way to demonstrate their commitment to the environment. It says,

Finnair recycles or re-uses more than 50% of all cabin waste. Aluminum cans and clear plastic bottles are recycled.

Packages and utensils, mugs and cups, napkins as well as plastic wine bottles from European flights are burned to produce energy.

In a stunning reversal of entrenched policy, Finnair inexplicably removes all numbers from their bag! Now there's no way to differentiate or track them. And they removed this just in time to no longer be able to take advantage of Big Data.

Exactly like the newfangled 2001 bag, except while Finnair usually loves to number their bags, this time, there is no number in the fold under the word Stenqvist (other than the 810452 002 mark that they all have).

Identical to other Finnair bags, except the phrase "EURAN PAPERI" is printed on the back.

Finnair

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Moshe Feldman
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to other Finnair bags, except no numbers are printed on the back. However, in the fold it says Rosenlew 4997. As a bonus, the fold also says "810452 001"

Finnair

Approximate Vintage: 2017

Print or Image Color: Gray
Background / Bag Color: White
Finnair goes for minimalism with their flying F abstract airplane. The manufacturer prints their info on the front instead of the back saying: FSC
www.fsc.org>br> MIX
Paper from responsible sources
FSC C002476

Finnaviation

Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
An all-time favorite. An illustration of a reindeer spewing cubism chunks. This is different than the 1996 model because on the lower part of the back side (which I've actually called the bottom for purposes of saving disk space and your time) has the number 118 printed on it.

Finnish Railways

Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
This might actually be just a trash bag ... who knows? But I figured I'd include it just in case. I really like the word Luonnollisesti (which translates to "naturally")

It also says VR, which can't possibly mean "virtual reality" or can it?

First Choice

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Andy Rudge
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
What a great bag. It says, "Unexpected Departure? Don't worry, we'll look after you." Finally, an airline that cares deeply about your vomit! And what kind of name is First Choice Airways? It sounds like either a brand of dog food or a microwaveable dinner.

First Ferry

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Roman Iwanczuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: Green
No other bag is quite like this one. It's actually quite transparent when held up to the light, but it's a really awful green color. Plastic and shiny with a gripper zipper, it's exactly what you might hope to reach for when you're going from Hong Kong to Lantau Island.

One of the few bags that actually say 'Vomit Bag' on it, instead of a more delicate euphemism. I just love the black and purple!

Fischer Air

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Alexei Sheshenya
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
While the bag is pretty standard, who in their right mind would abbreviate Falcon Air as "Fair"? What next, CH/Air? H/Air?

Fischer Air

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Garnier Fabrice
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
Identical to other Fischer Air bag except this one has a smaller logo, yet inexplicably, the same capacity of the other one. It's an optical illusion!

Flug Service Berlin

Received From: Richard David Glueck
Print or Image Color: Green and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to other Flug Service Berlin bag except the logo has an eighth note in it, a scaled down version of the blob used subsequently.

Flugfelag Islands

David McNamara says: I speak Norwegian, and Icelandic is just about readable. The text on the bag translates literally as "Be so kind as to leave the bag on the floor after use". I can't offer any ideas regarding the source of the bag but, if it is an airline barf bag, there can't be all that many Icelandic airlines. Astute Icelandic expert Helga KG translates the text as "Please put the bag on the floor after use"

Collector Thomas Homer Goetz claims it's from Flugfelag Islands as does Capt. Hilmar Snorrason from Reykjavik, Iceland, which is good enough for me!

Identical to other Flugfelag Islands bag, except the bottom indicates this was manufactured by ELAG.

Fly Niki (Niki Lauda)

I LOVE the cool housefly on this bag. The only bag I've ever seen with one on it. However, I have no idea what a Speibsackerl is.

Vomit Pundit, Paul Hager to the rescue! He explains that "Speibsackerl is the colloquial expression for Sickbag in Austria!"
