Star Airlines

This French bag even has the stars in the folds. However, with their funky font, you might mistake this for Stan Airlines. Shouldn't they have called it Etoile Airlines?

This French bag no longer has the stars in the folds. It is substantially the same as their earlier offering except I guess they wanted to use more ink than the reverse-video earlier offering.

Star Market

Approximate Vintage: 1984
Background / Bag Color: Blue
It REALLY looks like a barf bag, but just contained cookies. Doug Barry says, "Then, after you eat them, you can toss your cookies!"

Star Peru

Great Peruvian bag complete with website, reservation number and quasar.

Excellent logo reminiscent of the trim design on a 1966 Ford LTD.

Starfox 64

"Expect Turbulence" quips this excellent bag. The bag was used to announce a video game from Nintendo and was distributed along with a press release to the gaming media. Unfortunately, the lame press release was full of dates, but didn't display the year. Do you know what year this happened?

Anonymous gamer 'edotdj' to the rescue, claiming that: "The game was actually released in summer of July 97. The bag itself most likely originated from E3 (Electronics Entertainment Expo) of 96 or 97." I swear I have the best site visitors.

Steam Packet Company (The)

A pretty quaint name for a modern Isle of Man catamaran/ferry company. If you thought Manx Airlines' logo looked like Franco Lentini, you ain't seen nothing yet! This bag shows Franco on a Japanese sun.

Stena Line

Cool bag from one of the largest European Ferry companies, Swedish I think.

Sterling

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Quite a striking bag that needs an ever so slight tweek of the vertical hold adjustment. Back of bag indicates 'waterproof' which aside from the ability to open up should be number 2 on any bags list of priorities.

Sterling

A quality Duni product, whatever that is. Maybe it's big in Copenhagen, where the charter is located.

Sterling

Elegant, unremarkable bag in Harvard Crimson colors.

Sterling

Approximate Vintage: 2006

This bag features a smart looking flight attendant taunting you with a non-existent sandwich. In fact, Sterling is so fixated on cost cutting that this bag exhorts you to advertise on it. Oh, and you might as well go to their website and sign up for Sterling Spam as well.

Sterling Airways

Fairly non-descript, simple design with a caravelle plane. Unlike the eerily similar Sterling Airways bag, this does NOT claim to be waterproof.

It looks like they repeated the S&H Green Stamp logo 238 times on this bag. If you didn't know any better, you'd think this bag was either a Seasickness Bag or harkened from Sea Air (which makes no sense).

Stockholm Airport Train

Lagg Garna Ditt Skrap Har sounds like something you might find on a menu just below Lutefisk.

Well it's a sticker on a bag, but the sticker actually says 'Airsickness Bag', so it must be intentional.

Sudan Airways

I just noticed that the Arabic words that mean Air Sickness Bag actually look like gross streams of vomit. And I thought Arabic was character based, not pictographic. In any event the logo seems rather political. First, you have the big important logo, but next to it as an afterthought, is a crummy tiny logo which adds nothing to the overall design and meaning of this bag. In the same way, my description adds nothing to the overall design and meaning of this web site.

Summit Bank

This is the ONLY bank sickness bag I know of. A great gimmick, given that the bank specializes in Aviation Financing.

Sun Aire Lines

Received From: Steven Price
This is an AWESOME 1970's bag from an airline with a sense of humor. In Steve Price's own words: About half of one face is taken up by a logo of a duck wearing a leather helmet with ear flaps and aviator goggles, arms outstretched, surrounded by the words "Quayet Erp Barfing Bag". Directly beneath the logo are the words, "for motion sickness and other emergencies", then, in a separate paragraph, "Successful use of this bag, enroute and without knowledge of the crew or other passengers, entitles you to membership in the Quayet Erp Barfing Society. SUN AIRE LINES. Dedicated to good, clean flying."

The other side is more businesslike, with two paragraphs of text. "This envelope contains one moisture-proof plastic bag. To be used during moments of motion sickness." "After use, seal contents in bag with enclosed tie, and hold in hands like a security blanket. Other passengers will appreciate it."

Sun Aire Lines flew puddlejumpers (for all I know it still does) between Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and smaller airports in southern California. The planes held perhaps a dozen passengers and flew around rather than over most mountains. The sensation of being in one was what I imagine it must be like to ride a butterfly.)
