Sky Europe

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Frank Schwabe
Print or Image Color: Blue, Green, Red
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
This is a very confusing bag. On one hand, it's found on Sky Europe Airlines, but it promotes Sky Hotels, which isn't such a stretch, but then there's a picture of a happy green octopus with a bowling ball head. Plus you can get 10 Euros cash back for booking with Octopus Travel. One more thing that's cool is that the offer ends August '05, so we know the date of issue.

Skyjack Air

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Yellow-Orange
This bag came from a British publication called "Inflight" that kind of analyzes and glorifies skyjacking. Note that the plane featured on the bag is upside-down and crashing. This is intentional.

Skyline Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Navy, Maroon
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag features a great picture of an Indian woman throwing up into a bag. You can even see her caste by the dot on her forehead. Plus she appears to be wearing a nose ring.

The descriptive text says: APPLICATION: This bag can be used for vomitting, spitting, throwing the wrappers of chocolates etc, and throwing baby's excreta in the flight period. Thanks!

Skyline NEPC

Received From: Mike Roselle
Print or Image Color: Blue, Black and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Looks like they put a dive flag on the front.

Skymark Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gray
This Japanese carrier seems like they appropriated the Subaru logo. The only problem is that there are 7 stars in the Pleides, which Subaru's logo is patterned after. Skymark only uses 5 stars in seemingly random alignment.

Skymark Airlines

identical to the 2002 version except it now has a white tear strip.

Skymark Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Similar to the earlier gray version, but the line of stars is now printed at the top of the bag.

Skymark Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Similar to the earlier navy version, but the line of stars is now an airplane on the front and a tailfin on the back. There is also a nice star reminiscent of the Chilean Sky Airlines.

Skynet Asia Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Toshiaki Anan
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
For Terminator fans, this is an unfortunate name for an airline. From the Sarah Connor Wiki site, "Skynet sees all humans as a threat to its programmed purpose", perhaps just like this airline.

Skyservice

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Burckhard Rodens
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
So little thought was put into this bag, that they halfheartedly printed fold lines on the bag, never indicating what they might possibly be for.

Skyways

Received From: Jan Ivar Ernø
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Now this one is an abstract logo that is reminiscent of a long shot of Mike Jittlov, the Wizard of Speed and Time. Thanks to Graham Curran and Rune Tapper for the ID!

Skyways AB

Received From: Jan Ivar Ernø
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
What a pretty blue flower. Looks like it's part of the Nightshade family. Museum visitor Monique Reed says it looks like a gentian.
Paul Van de Keere, who works for the bag manufacturer, de Ster-ACS, says that this bag is from Skyways AB. Wow, what an awesome job. Working at a puke bag factory!

SkyWork Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2013
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy, Green
Great Swiss Airline design. The bag says "YOUR PERSONAL WAY TO FLY".

Smart Mom Sak

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Red, Yellow, White, Black
Background / Bag Color: White, Black, Blue
This multi-purpose 'sak' claims to be a crisis-solving helper for moms. Apparently this bag and I have different definitions of a crisis. The bag's playful multi-color design along with a spectacled mom and interesting copy makes this a winner. The copy says:

Grab the Smart Mom Sak for:

  • Leaking juice boxes
  • Car sick children
  • Dirty diapers
  • Unexpected messes
  • Wet toys and clothes
  • Morning sickness
  • Leftover food
Simply fill, seal and go!

SN Brussels Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Frederic Courtay
Print or Image Color: Blue, Red, Purple
Background / Bag Color: White
While SN is the element abbreviation for Tin, this bag is decidedly paper. Another airline in the long line of failed Sabena spinoffs.

SN Brussels Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue, White
SN Brussels chooses possibly the worst background ever -- what appears to be a close-up of hair follicles. It's kind of digusting, actually.

Snoop Doggy Bag

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Erin Hanson
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
WILD 101-FM in Toronto created this gem which, although it doesn't say barf bag anywhere on it, seems to be a nice addition to this collection.

Snorkel Bob

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to other Snorkel Bob bag except it has a kitchen trash bag closing mechanism.

This is the type of bag that's really a cornerstone of any collection. It's an awesome offering that I think is worth quoting in its entirety.

For when you'd rather be somewhere else

If you want to barf, you should:
  1. Begin irregular breathing.
  2. Gulp air.
  3. Fade pale to chalky white
  4. Make stomach sounds like walking in mud
  5. Question life
  6. Promise God Himself that if He only gets you out of this one back on dry land, you will always be good forever
  7. Suddenly feel good. This feeling lasts 2-4 seconds. Nature allows this brief interlude so you can OPEN YOUR SNORKEL BOB BARF BAG
  8. Go snake-eyed, look down, inhale deep, bulge your cheeks, open wide and
  9. Cut her loose

Helpful Hints

  1. Remember -- you won't puke if you stay busy
  2. Yes, kosher dills work. Yuk. But it's true. You can even keep them in your Snorkel Bob Barf Bag as long as your Snorkel Bob Barf Bag is otherwise unused
  3. Last night's pasta looks terrible on deck, so keep your Snorkel Bob Barf Bag handy
  4. Always smile and look cheerful. Never look embarrassed, especially in roly-poly waves and billious diesel fumes when everybody else on board is having fun. If anybody asks, you can tell them even I, Snorkel Bob, love a good puke. It's acceptable, possibly de rigeur, and it's good to feed the fish.
  5. Most important of all, close your Snorkel Bob Barf Bag securely and don't turn it upside down! Even on an experimental basis. Trust me?

Identical to other Snorkel Bob bag except it has no closing mechanism, only a shopping bag-like handle.

Sobelair

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Frederic Courtay
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Baby Blue
Sneaky Sobelair appropriates the Sabena logo, blows it up to immense proportions, and uses it for its own. This is the baby blue version for softer, calmer flights.
