Yes, side 2 is actually upside-down. This may cause confusion at the wrong moment, which could result in a hazardous spill. By the way, the donor is Swiss, who I find to be the most generous people when it comes to barf bags, as he just sent it completely unsolicited. Thanks Thomas!

This "Cleanliness Bag" is pretty plain although the instructions are italicized. Otherwise unremarkable.

China Civil Aviation

This bag sure looks a lot like a CAAC bag, but to my Gringo eyes, who knows? Any verification out there? Odd to see a plane flying right through a cumulo-nimbus thunderhead. Also, somebody's phone number seems to be printed on this bag.

Bag Studs Paul K-H Wang, and YL Tan solve the mystery and identify this bag as China Civil Aviation. YL elaborates: The words on the bag are:
China Civil Aviation
Clean bag
Civil Aviation Chengdu Management Office Printing
The bag is from Sichuan, China. I don't think the numbers are someone's telephone number, more likely the printing batch code.

Kind of a nice design. Daisies, grapes, a rose and holly on a yield sign is actually quite pleasing.

This bag is very similar to the 1998 bag, except the letters are in block letters, not outlined as in the 1998 version.

Stella-matic comes through on her trip to China and Singapore with this lovely specimen. It's called a Cleaning Bag, but I haven't found it very useful in cleaning my place up. Sports abstract logo of a plane that, if it actually looked like that, you would never fly in.

China Eastern displays its obvious bias towards right handed people because it would be difficult for a left handed person to tear off the strip using the instructions on the bag.

Identical to the 2001 bag except the blue arrow on the tear strip has mysteriously vanished!

China Eastern finally gets funky! They start to have some fun with their bag, by placing a short stubby cartoon airplane on their bag. This is the first Chinese bag I'm aware of with this kind of whimsy. Notice how this bag is 'WATER-PRFOOED' instead of 'WATER-PROOFED'.

This is identical to the other 2004 bag on the front, but the back is completely Navy Blue, plus there's some printing in the crease.
