British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Rene F. Prupes
Print or Image Color: Light Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: Dark Blue
In a stunning surprise, the Brits abandon their staple of six visual usage icons and go to a demure Blug bag that simply states 'waste'!

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2008

Same as it ever was, but now they are manufacturered by Helios, as evidenced by the bottom of the bag.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2009
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Dark Blue
Same as it ever was, but now they got rid of the bottom as well as the dotted line on the back telling you to fold it. I'm not sure why they did away with these features, as they can only make things less messy.

British Airways Iberia

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Charcoal
The bag looks like a new British Airways bag, but it's really British Airways Iberia, whatever that is.

British Caledonian

Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
The lion on the crest is understated, belying the future cloning of it into 2 lions.

British Caledonian

Received From: David Fazakerley
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue, Gold
The lion appears to be juggling.

British Caledonian

Approximate Vintage: 1987
Received From: Stan Baumwald
Paid $2.25 + $1 postage for this one on eBay. There are holes punched in it, as if it were in a 3 ring binder. Therefore, I must warn you: Bag is for display purposes only! And why do the British always have to put the name "British" in their airline names? You'd think we had forgotten that they invented radar or something.

The bag that now resides in the museum is a better (non hold punched) version of original bag.

British European

Received From: Steven James
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
I guess this is the modern day version of BEA, a red bag. This bag has a big old mouse cursor on it -- either that or the top view of an SST, even though I don't know if they even have one.

British European

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Blue, Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
If you didn't know any better (I didn't), you'd think this airline was named Flybe. The color bar on the bottom right of the bag shows that halftoning is not the forte of the people that printed the bag (De Ster because of the stars in the fold, I think).

British Midland Airways (BMA)

Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
The airplane logo looks more like a wing-nut to me. Does anyone know if this is a predecessor of BMI (British Midlands International)?

British Midland International (BMI)

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
A new airline arising from the old British Midlands. I am told that in a cost cutting measure, they have already replaced these bmi bags with white generics.

British Midland International (BMI)

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Andy Rudge
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to 2001 bag except has no stars in the folds.

British Midland International (BMI)

Approximate Vintage: 2012
Received From: Wolfgang Lüthje
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Cool logo-in-a-circle graces this bag.

British Midlands (BM)

Approximate Vintage: 1996
Received From: Craig Richards
The logo makes it look like it's from the gas company. Blue stars in the fold.

The logo makes it look like it's from the gas company. Orange stars in the fold.

British Midlands Diamond Service

Approximate Vintage: 1989
Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue and Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
Not only does British Midlands segregate service by class on a single plane, they seem to have an entire fleet for richer passengers.

British Midlands Diamond Service

Received From: Matthias Koch
Print or Image Color: Red and Gray
Background / Bag Color: White
Nice topological construct comprised of 7 diamonds into a snowflake-like crystal made of some element that bonds at 51.428571 degrees.

British Rail

Received From: John Griffiths
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This old 70s British Rail bag (it even says BR 962/1) just looks like a rail bag. I'm told it's also used on hovercraft, but it sure doesn't have that hovercraft feel.

Brittany Ferries

Received From: Steve Jones
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
You know as much about this bag as I do. It should probably just classified as a Generic The only way I figured out this bag's origin is that the postmark was from Wales. According to Steve, it "is only used on Brittany Ferries as far as I know."

BroadcastBid.com

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
During the National Association of Broadcasters trade show in Philadephia September 2005, BroadcastBid.com thought that the best way to advertise their service was with a barf bag. Here is the result.
