Tame

Approximate Vintage: 1984

Same as the 1987 version except much darker

Tame

Received From: Steve Thompson
Background / Bag Color: Dark Blue Plastic
Ecuadorian bag similar to all other Tame bags through time, except they decided to change the manufacturer to Montgar (see bottom left).

Tame

Finally, Tame decided to add the word Ecuador to its bag, displaying national pride in doing so. Bag says, "Alas para la integracion" which I think means "I give up at Calculus".

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2004

Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue Plastic
Still much the same bag as 20 years ago, however, the company name is no longer subordinate to the logo.

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue Plastic
Same as it ever was, except now the manufacturer is Montegar (see lower left).

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
Looks very much the same as it did in the 80s except for the reverse "negative" colors. For some reason, the bag mentions SAB Catering Service (as the culprit for getting you sick no doubt).

Montgar starts getting full of themselves and now prominently display their name centered on the bag higher up than before.

Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
At some point in the internet era (I'm still trying to figure out when) Tame started selling bag space to Güitig, the Ecuadorian sparkling water company. However, this bag has a white plastic flap on the front that covers Tame's own advertising copy. You actually have to barf (or open the flap) to see the following:

Aviones realmente nuevos
alta technologia * alta seguridad * alta comodidad
Which means
Really New Airplanes
High technology * High comfort * High Security

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2015

Over the span of 30 years, Tame has changed the way it displays the airline name from all caps to all lower case.

TAME

Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Blue Plastic
This bag differs from all the other early 80s TAME bags because it says "Empaques Calidad Montegar" low on the bag. The only problem with Calidad Montegar is that it means Montegar Quality, of which there is little. For example, at the very bottom right of the bag, they misspell Montegar as Montgar. Plus the entire bag is off-register and not centered as other versions of TAME are.

Tan Generic

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Ron Frashure
Print or Image Color: Brown
Background / Bag Color: Tan
Used on Exel and Air Antarctica among others

TANS Peru

Received From: Thomas Homer Goetz
Print or Image Color: Gray and Red
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
This bag is almost identical to the other Tans Peru (the 500th bag) except inexplicably, they decided that this bag was sadly wanting, so they decided they needed to add the word Peru.

This was my 500th bag

Bruce Kelly brought it bag from a bag harvesting trip to South America. This bag now signifies a landmark in my life. You know, you strive your entire life to achieve, and that achievement is embodied by a small miracle like this bag. Thanks Bruce!

Tap Air Portugal

Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
The instructions actually make sense but the bag is still unremarkable. Portuguese people must get airsick a lot because they have a 5 letter word for it, 'enjoo'.

Tap Air Portugal

Clean and minimalistic.

Tap Air Portugal

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Petr Hosek
Print or Image Color: Gray
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
Clean and minimalistic. Same as other 1999 bag, except the instructions on the back are left justified instead of centered. Note the error: each step is "Step 1" Corrected on later bags.

Tap Air Portugal

TAP tries again to fix the bag's reverse. The instructions are not centered, nor are they wrong (with two first steps).

TAP modernizes its boring bag by adding a red adhesive strip to supplant its white one. Truly revolutionary, NOT!
