Jet Blue

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Almost generic, but not quite. The bottom boasts the horribly corporate www.ipacksolution.com

Jet Star

Approximate Vintage: 2009

OMG, this is soooo generic looking. And no, it's not intended for nausea that may occur reading the popular magazine, Jet.

Jet4You

Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: Red, White
Background / Bag Color: Green
I don't know much about Jet4you.com, but it appears to be a French bag that says, "The lowest price for everyone"

JetLite

Approximate Vintage: 2012
Received From: Wolfgang Lüthje
Print or Image Color: Blue, Black, Yellow, White
Background / Bag Color: Blue, White
Cool Indian Bag that hopes you're feeling better. Very light blue coloring reminiscent of Air Dolomiti.

Jetstar Naked

Approximate Vintage: 2013
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This excellent bags says, "Feeling a little queasy? Get Naked (when you get home!)"

The bag goes on to try to make the case that Naked brand ginger is going to help ease your air sickness (after you have safely landed and have already made your way home). They go on to include all sorts of wacky copy including mention of Botticelli and the Birth of Venus. They also wax nostalgic about Marco Polo and his relation to ginger. There are all sorts of long-shot associations including a recommendation to "Make delicious ginger beer at home". Plus as a bonus, there's a word search.

None of this has anything to do with throwing up on a plane, but it's all entertaining nonetheless.

Jetstar Pacific

Approximate Vintage: 2017
Received From: Maria Dolores Prieto
Print or Image Color: Orange
Background / Bag Color: White, Orange
Nice orange bag with a one-armed person throwing paper away in a trash can. The bag says CHI DUNK KAI NON.

Jezebel

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Anna Holmes
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This beauty was distributed as a funny protest of Fashion Week 2007. Read about the stunt here in New York City. The bags say, "Celebrity, Sex, Fashion. Without Airbrushing." Originally, the bags contained Ex-Lax, tongue depressors, and Tic-Tacs, but unfortunately, the Ex-Lax was gone from the bag I obtained. A winner!

Jinair

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: White, Green
Background / Bag Color: Green, White
A very subtly colored light-green and white bag with a cool Escher-like butterfly airplane logo. Nobody over 50 years old can possibly read the text on the back because of the extremely poor contrast.

JMC

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Andy Rudge
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Lime Green
This is one of the studliest bags to come along in a while. The toxic looking bag says, "Sick as a ...". Next to that is an abstract drawing of an inchworm with a cowlick. Now that's exactly the image you want your airline to portray -- an inchworm -- the paragon of speed and efficiency. Furthermore, the bottom of the bag warns that "This bag may contain bio-hazardous waste after use". Really? What kind of food is JMC serving anyway?

Bagmeister Ian Brown corrects me by writing, 'Your JMC Air Bag description describes the critter as an inch worm. It's actually a parrot. It's due to an English phrase "As sick as a parrot". I don't know where the phrase comes from, it could be a reference to Monty Pythons dead parrot sketch.' Pretty arcane representation of a parrot if you ask me.

JMC

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Lime Green
Almost identical to the 2000 version except the instructions now span two lines instead of one. I'm sure there's a good reason for this that I don't understand, but that's probably why I'm a failure in business.

Juneyao

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Red, White
Background / Bag Color: Red, Pink, White
Great Dragon-in-oval logo. Doing it's best to distance themselves from barf, they surreptitiously leave the fine Juneyao name off the bag.

Kam Air

Received From: Frederic Lamarche
Print or Image Color: Blue, Orange, White
Background / Bag Color: Blue, White
This bag exudes character, panache, and sexuality.

Karair

Approximate Vintage: 1996
Received From: Craig Richards

KC-135

Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Manilla
This bag is used in the "Vomit Comet" which trains astronauts to withstand weightlessness. It comes along with a piece of tissue paper which is supposedly used as a moustache wipe (for hairy male astronauts).

Ken & Tracy Nilsen Wedding

Approximate Vintage: 2017
Received From: Ken Nilsen
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is the very first WEDDING BAG I've ever seen! Well, other than the Lydia Leith Royal Wedding spoof bags No, this bag is not for a bachelor(ette) party. It was actually printed up for a flight on which flight lovers Ken and Tracy Nilsen got married. The wedding is featured on Bravo and you can read about it here. You can also see another news story here.

The bag itself says "IN CASE LOVE MAKES YOU QUEASY".

Shout out to 5 Dot Design that printed the bags.

Kenya Airways

Received From: Tim Gibson
Background / Bag Color: Black and Tan
According to Tim, this actually came off a Kenya Airways flight, perhaps when they were between bags. The bag is fairly generic, but is very reminiscent of Air Zimbabwe

You are flying K7 Airways, if you look at the bag carefully.

Kenya Airways

Received From: Manfred Kleber
Print or Image Color: Red and Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Odd that an African airline has English only. Like KLM's Dusty the Kangaroo, this bag is 'for a clean feeling'.

Kenya Airways

Bag design is very clean -- until you use it.

Kenya Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Laura Wilcox
Print or Image Color: Red and Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is identical to the 2000 version except both sides are printed, not just the front.
