Air Santo Domingo

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Red, Yellow, Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Quite a pretty bag for a country as poor as the Dominican Republic. If you examine the bag, the departing and arriving flights better not fly into each other.

Air Senegal International

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Red, Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Therapists may have designed this bag as the text exhorts you to Relax. The bag then shows 5 different ways to throw up: Use your hand, your leg (a tough barfing position), your feet, your head, and then your shoulders. Of course, they may not be vomiting instructions, they may be hackey sack instructions.

Not a bad bag that features 2 birds flying in precise formation, like they're synchronized flying.

Air Seychelles

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Graham Curran
Print or Image Color: Brown
Background / Bag Color: Yellow
Yellow has got to be the ugliest color for a barf bag. But therein lies its beauty. Sports an abstract Origami logo.

Air Seychelles

Approximate Vintage: 2001

This is an awful bag for nausea tyros. First, you must find the instructions, which are on the bottom of the bag, which puts you in a disadvantageous position. Then you must read the light blue microfiche in order to glean the incredibly useless instructions.

Air Seychelles

Approximate Vintage: 2005

Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to the previous Air Seychelles incarnation, except the design of the bag's underside was changed. What a huge upgrade!

Air Seychelles

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
They Air Seychelles logo is now printed as a negative. Plus they added some stuff to the bottom of the bag ... in French even.

Air Seychelles

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
They Air Seychelles logo is now printed as a negative. This bag has a serrated top, unlike the other 2010 Air Seychelles.

They Air Seychelles logo is now printed as a negative. This bag has a straight top, unlike the other 2010 Air Seychelles which is serrated.

Air Siam

Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is of unknown vintage. Siam changed its name to Thailand in 1939, but I don't suspect this bag is that old. One cool thing about the bag is the ornate draperies decorating the bag's top.

Air Slovakia

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
What an exquisite design job they did on this bag. It's actually quite beautiful, even if it does look like it's covered in pizzas with a roach on each slice. This is a bag design that truly 'works'. (PS: It's made in Bratislava, where the Wild and Crazy guys, Jorge and Yortuk are supposedly from).

Air Tahiti

Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is a fairly generic bag that doesn't say Tahiti anywhere on it. In fact, all it has is some French on the bottom telling you it is meant to dispose of chewing gum and others. However, the real clue is the Tahitian word "Mauruuru" meaning "Thank You".

Air Tahiti Nui

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Well they almost got the English right: This may use for Air Sickness. That's OK, the pretty flower on the bag makes up for the poor English usage.

Air Tahiti Nui

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to the previous Air Tahiti Nui bag except they printed a dotted line on the tear strip so that people wouldn't fumble with the bag trying maniacally to open it.

Air Transat

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: David Birtwell
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
The red 'a' is hiding from the rain under the blue 't'

Air Transat

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Christopher Smit
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to 1998 model except for new closing mechanism.

Air Transat

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Barry Day
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
OH NO! The bag, which used to have a smattering of color, went monochrome. Bite me!

Air Transat

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
The Lisa Simpson-like star logo looks eerily like the De Ster logo on the bottom of the bag.

Air Transat

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
This version has the same Lisa Simpson-like star logo, but the new manufacturer seems to think that the two French words "pour le" (for the) is one word, "pourle".

Air Transport Association (Sick of Taxes?)

Approximate Vintage: 2011
Received From: Adina Young
Print or Image Color: White, Black, Blue, Gold
Background / Bag Color: White, Black, Blue, Gold
In 2011, in order to bolster a beleaguered economy, the US imposed new taxes on the airline industry. In order to protest this, the Air Transport Association came out with barf bags that say "Sick of Taxes?" Stop new airline taxes from driving up costs and reducing service. Add Taxes. Ground the economy.

The one thing I don't really get is that they printed a big QR code on the bag and then obscured it with a tiny cartoon airplane, maybe for design reasons.
