This airlines only operated between 1966 and 1972. The logo says "Serving the Orient and Australia". In the fold, it says "Singapore Paper Products". There are lots of instructions on the bag as well: "FOR AIRSICKNESS CLOSE BY FOLDING TOWARDS YOU AND SECURE BY TURNING TABS BACK". Also, "UNTOK MABOK WAKTU TERBANG UNTOL DI-TUTOP LIPATKAN KA-ARAH TURN DAN RAPATKAN DENGAN DI-PUSINGKAN PUNCHA-NYA KA-BELAKANG".

The writers of Batman comic books borrowed heavily from these instructions to narrate fight scenes.

My Bridesmaids Are To Blame

Great bachelorette bag. I'm not exactly sure where it originated from however.

Myanma Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: Benoit Meyer
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Has a cumbersome plastic bag inside the regular bag that makes it a pain to store.

Myanmar Airways International

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Herb Schingoethe
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Identical to this bag, except there's nothing printed on the bottom.

Myanmar Airways International

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Frederic Lamarch
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
This bag sports possibly the ugliest animal ever. However, I must commend Myanmar for going with a much less cumbersome functional design than its predecessor. Ironically both Myanmar bags I have come from French colleagues. Coincidence???

Nice pegasus logo next to the stylistic MAI carrier name.

MyTravel Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Ulrik Christensen
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy and White
Very professional looking demure bag whose name screams "Discount Airline"! I actually think there's some story behind this airline and its name, but hell if I know it!

According to Ulrik, MyTravel Airways is "an airline formed in the ruins of Premiair. The first flights took off in May of 2002, and the concept is just about the same as with Premiair."

Nachtbrakers

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Thomas Siffer
Print or Image Color: Blue
This is the short version of this bag. The full explanation of this comes from Thomas' letter.

Enclosed you'll find the results of an advertising campaign my company made. The variety of bags on your site was an inspiration for us. Thanks.

The campaign was made for the free nightbusses that are organized by the city of Gent (Belgium) in cooperation with De Lun (public transport), to get young people home safely in the weekends.

The cmpaign line reads 'NIGHTPUKERS, the last round is on us'.

'Nachtbrakers' (literal translation: 'night pukers') is a Dutch slang word for people that party hard and late. 'The last round is on us' is what you'd call if you offer a last round of drinks for everybody at a bar, but at the same time it could mean that the nightbusses take care of your last round/route home.

Two types of barf bags were made. The longer one was used as an envelope, sent to all kids in Gent between 16-20 years old, with a letter from a bus driver inside. It's also a route plan and time schedule. In the square, you read 'WARNING: the use of a nightbus after heavy partying can cause nausea'.

The larger bag was distributed on the busses and in bars and clubs.

Of course, the whole 'barf bag' idea was used because of the word 'NACHTBRAKERS' (nightpukers) and because kids that drink too much do vomit more often. And it's a cool carrier of an important message.

So here youa re, a little addition to your site.

This is the first bag I ever received that has a web site on it. No doubt many more are to follow. Odd green and yellow arrows.

NationAir appears to have stolen the New Balance logo. Unfortunately, there seems to be no 'width sizing' on this bag.

These bags were handed out in Reagan Airport, Washington DC in December 2013 to protest Airline Taxes. The copy reads:

SICK OF TAXES?
About $61 of your typical $300 domestic roundtrip ticket goes to federal taxes.

Another enormous monstrosity that isn't even close to fitting on the scanner. This red bag is probably the largest bag I have. I can't imagine how many meals you'd have to eat to fill this leviathan.
