There's no better representation of your airline than a helmeted Neptune in a Union Jack wheelchair!

Ah yes, the fat to thin striping paradigm.

Britannia (no thumb tab)

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: Martin Powley
Exactly the same as the other Britannia bag, but this one has no thumb tab. The other one does. I am such a loser for distinguishing this. In fact, it's so hard to see in the scan that I used the same image for both bags. Sorry.

Dark Blue Logo on White. They cleaned the design of this bag up nicely.

British Airtours

Received From: Burkhard Walther
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This simplistic bag reminds us that British Airtours didn't always have a bent staple logo.

British Airtours

Background / Bag Color: White
The silly red angled underline seems eerily similar to that of British Air. I assume therefore that British Airtours was just a part of British Air.

A monochromatic version of the previous model, even more dull than its predecessor -- if that's possible.

This simplistic bag reminds us that British Airtours didn't always have a bent staple logo.

Exactly the same as the other British Airtours except this one is far narrower.

British Airways' first attempt at a Barf Bag after changing over from BOAC is unremarkable

On this particular bag, the German words identifying what this is (Wasserdichter Abrallbehälter) takes up 2 lines, unlike subsequent models.

The instructions on the back look just fine, but not to the British Air management. See subsequent models...

The instructions on the back look just fine, but not to the British Air management. See subsequent models... Identical to other 1984 bag except this one has a thumb tab.

Same as 1984 version, but the German instructions were looking a little cramped, necessitating a 3rd line.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1986
Received From: Ken Pugh
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Savvy British Marketing moguls decided that German instructions really requires 3 lines of instructions instead of 2 as on the 1985 model.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1987
Received From: Albert Oosenbrug
Print or Image Color: Red and Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
The reproduction of a highly detailed British coat-of-arms and crest in a 1 cm x 1 cm space looks a lot like the bad discount tattoo you got at 3 AM.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1989
Received From: David Goldberg
This is EXACTLY the same as the other 1989 BA bag, except it has a straight top, instead of a serrated one. I know, picky, picky, picky.

Striped bag! Radical departure for British Air, revoked soon thereafter.

In a pointless maneuver, they decided to move the logo to the bottom of the bag.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Marty St. George
Print or Image Color: Black and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Almost, but not quite identical with the 1995 bag. The French and Spanish usage instructions were altered slightly. Oh those wacky Brits!
