Trans International

Approximate Vintage: 1975
Received From: Michael C. Green
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Michael says, 'From charter airline TransInternational - TIA, name changed in mid-70's to TransAmerica. Victim of deregulation, carrier has been out of business for over fifteen years.'

You can take a look at Transamerica and convince yourself that the airline might not have gone out of business had they changed their bag design as well as their name. I mean what good is changing your name if you still wear the same clothes and hairstyle?

Trans International Airlines (TIA)

Another great old bag from the precursor of Trans America Airlines. You can even see the logo has a similar style.

Trans Maldivian Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: David Holgate
Print or Image Color: Navy, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: White
Trans Malidivian abbreviates their name as TMA, which you might at first glance think stands for Too Much Airline.

Trans Malidivian abbreviates their name as TMA, which you might at first glance think stands for Too Much Airline. This updated 2005 version now has the website on it.

Pretty much, they just rearranged the copy on the bag, however my favorite part of this specimen is that it says "Air Sickness Bag" on the bottom only (just in case you wondered what it was for).

TransAer

Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Defunct Irish Airline with some Gaelic thorn-like logo.

Transaero

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
The printing on this Russian bag makes it appear as though the airline's inkjet cartridge is running out and is starting to miss scan lines.

Transaero

Approximate Vintage: 2009
Received From: Vidas Vekerotas
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Transaero distances itself from barfing by keeping the stylish bag, but eliminating their branding and instructions.

Transaero

Print or Image Color: Blue, Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Great rasterized version of 19 planes flying off the grid. Quite artistic.

Transamerica

Approximate Vintage: 1983
Received From: Sally Marlino
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Features a set of 6 allen wrenches.

TransAsia Airways

Received From: Sean Chou
Print or Image Color: Purple
Background / Bag Color: White
Odd logo that strives to be a dragon, but looks more like a salamander. Very turbulent clouds grace the bag, which to GUI nerds indicates sickness.

TransAsia Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: Aidan Stradling
Print or Image Color: Purple
Background / Bag Color: White
On the front, the airline's logo is right side up, however, if you look at the other side, the print is upside-down and reading it might cause you to empty the bag's contents on your lap.

TransAsia Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Purple
Background / Bag Color: White, Purple
The TransAsia design gets more elegant, perhaps as Taiwanese tastes have matured. The bag obviously caters to English speakers however.

Transat

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Andy Rudge
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Blue and White
Air Sickness Bag designs go deco! The background of this bag is filled with different sized newspaper-like versions of the terms Sickness bag, Spuckbeutel, and Sac vomitoire. Worth a look.

Transat

Exactly the same as other Transat bag, except has a cute red star on the bottom.

Exactly the same as other Transat bags, except has a cute black star on the bottom.

Transavia

Received From: Sam Green
Print or Image Color: Black and Green
Background / Bag Color: Green and White
This, like Air Via Old is a beautiful bag. I think a large tailfin makes for a nice bag design. Interestingly, the plane shown on the bag is either landing or crashing. Perhaps they should have designed it so it was ascending.

This bag seems to indicate that you throw up through your hand and not your mouth.

AFVALZAKJE! This looks like a word I'd love to use to cheat in Scrabble. When someone inevitably challenged it, I could pull out the barf bag.
