China Northern Airlines

Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is a lot like the other China Northern bag, except notice how 'FOR VOMITING&DISCARDING' is so squeezed in. Plus 'tear off to open' has moved on both sides of the bag. Also, the telephone number on the back changes.

I'm not sure if this is a bird in front of the moon or snow capped mountains. Also, a green Chinese bag? What's going on?

Although this bag says "China North Airlines" the English name is actually China Northern Airlines. The bag is primarily in Chinese, meaning that English had yet to infiltrate the country and take over the copy on barf bags.

China Southern

Same as the 2005 version except now they show the universal "guy throwing trash in a wastebasket" symbol for those that were previously baffled by the bag's purpose.

Exactly the same as the other China Southern 2004 bag except there is no registration block on the back of the bag

21 vertical lines on the bag. Lotus flower logo.

Nausea stud, Y.L. Tan chimes in that the flower is not a lotus. It is a stylized kapok flower.

Much like the 21 vertical lines version except no printing on the back and they added a tab to seal the top.

Most of the parallel lines make it to the top of the bag, but strangely, two don't. It must have been a pain to design this bag because they erased the lines where the text runs -- and it sure doesn't look like a computer did it.

This bag is almost, but not quite, identical to this one. The difference young bag hobbyist, is that this bag only has 6 Chines characters under the logo. The other bag has 8. I'm sure there's a reason for this discrepancy, but I have no idea what it is!

China Southern Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Tim Gibson
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Very similar to other China Southern bags of the same era, but this one has instructions on the top. Usually, the instructions are only in English, but China Southern also uses Chinese as if to say, "We're morons too!". The reverse side still has the enigmatic '99 3 18265.8', but the folding instructions are gone!

I don't know Chinese, but the 4th Chinese character (reading left to right) in the airline's name kind of looks like a guy running to throw up somewhere.

Luckily, it's resident Chinese bag expert YL Tan to the rescue. YL claims that the character in question is called a 'fang' and it means 'direction'.

Although this looks like the 2000 version, the vitally important information '99 3 18265.8' was added to the bag's back.

They added the all important word "Airlines" to this bag.

China Southern totally redesigns their bag, eschewing their own name (at least in English). Bag is Water-Proofed instead of waterproof.

China Southern Airlines

Identical to the 2004 version, except there is no phone number on the back and a wire closing mechanism has been added.

China Southern Airlines Group

I guess they needed something to differentiate themselves form China Southern Airlines.

China Southwest Airlines

China Southwest Airlines

Received From: Craig Richards
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
The design makes the barfer believe that they're in an old movie theatre watch the stage production of "China Southwest Airlines Air Sickness Bag".

China Southwest Chonqing Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Andy Morris
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
As if the name China Southwest wasn't specific enough, they apparently decided that they needed to add Chonqing to this specific carrier. Same wacky bird-in-circle logo as other China Southwest bags though.

China United Airlines

Awesome old Chinese bag with the misspelled word "Cleanning". The logo is supposed to look like an airplane but is a lot closer to a toboggan.
