Cubana

Approximate Vintage: 1992
Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Airplane tailfin slants left, but writing slants right.

Cubana

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Uh oh, a taboo item from Cuba! Please don't tell the CIA! Makes you wonder why there's English on the bag given that Americans can't travel there. Oh yeah, I guess Brits speak English too.

Cubana

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
If Cubana planes fly the circuitous route necessary to spell out "75" as displayed on the front of this bag, no wonder passengers get sick.

Cubana

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
I'm told that many of the American cars in Cuba are old and broken down, since the USA won't allow parts to flow into the country. I sure hope that's not the case with the Cubana Air Fleet.

Cubana

Approximate Vintage: 2012
Received From: Walter Brinker
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Cubana goes minimalist, probably due to Raul Castro brotherly power games with Fidel's regime.

Cubana

Print or Image Color: Gray, Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Very tall Cuban bag. English appears on the bag, presumably for Canadian and British travelers because Americans sure as hell can't go there. Identical to the other tall Cubana bag except the mysterious initials JC (Juan Castro?) appear on the very lowest portion of the bag.

Cyprus Airways

Nice font on this bag, plus a stylized goat logo.

Yawn!

Cyprus Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Connie Thatcher
An anal retentive employee at Cyprus Airways, must have noticed the egregious missing space in airsicknessbag. This year's model sports the more linguistically correct "airsickness bag". Perhaps this administrator's plan for the year 2000 is to once again change the bag so that it says "air sickness bag".

Wow, it's the smiling sun. An excellent bag for airsick hippies.

Dan Air

Received From: Burkhard Walther
Print or Image Color: Navy and Red
Background / Bag Color: White and Red
Fans of "You Don't Know Jack" will recognize that question 4 (the question that cares) blatantly ripped off Dan Air (the airline that cares) about 25 years later. But I caught it. This bag is an oldie, back from an era where bag designs were bold and innovative. This one shows a navigational compass and the Earth with Europe and Africa prominent in the foreground.

Dan Air

Received From: Christopher Wren
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Either the bag designers were totally uncreative, or I'm uncreative in describing the bag in a compelling manner.

Dan Air

Approximate Vintage: 1985
Received From: Jen Chisholm
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Has combination airplane, compass, flag logo.

Dan Air

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Graham
Same as it ever was, except directions are printed much lower on the bag.

Dan Air

Received From: Peter Brown
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Has combination airplane, compass, flag logo.

Very similar to the other Dan Air offerings except this bag is much wider.

DANA (Dornier Aviation Nigeria AIEP)

Received From: Tim Lemmon
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
I'm pretty sure this is a generic Sic-Sac because it says Sic-Sac right on it, but perhaps someone knows more about this bag as I've never seen another like it.

Walter Brinker positively identifies this bag as rare DANA, Dornier Aviation Nigeria AIEP, although he doesn't know what AIEP means. Bruce Kelly agrees and says that the airline is no longer in operation.

Darkness (The) - Permission to Land

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Rebecca Price
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag, although it's really just 3 stickers on a bag, is a promotional item given to those attending the London launch party for the Darkness's Permission to Land album in 2003. This bag cost me about $20, ridiculously enough.

David Shomper, Bagologist

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Black, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Colorado bagologist David Shomper proves that barf bag collecting can be intergenerational. As a gift, David's son had a run of these personalized bags printed especially for him. We could all learn a little about raising a child from David.

Debonair

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Bruce Kelly
According to Bruce: Debonair-a French airline-this one is a plain white bag with a rather crude stamped, purple emblem at the top. A friend states this is the standard issue barf bag for that airline and not a "doctored" bag. Talk about cheesy!

Flash! Bag afficionado Stewart Bryant claims that Debonair was a low cost UK airline that went out of business in the late 90's. I love the people you meet on the Internet.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 1965
Received From: George Wilson
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Blue
This bag screams 60s. There's a 12 question aviation "quiz". Six of the answers are Delta (no other airline is ever mentioned). Was American society so pathetically naive self-aggrandizement as to not see through this? I guess what do you expect from a society that prides itself on and identifies with the brands displayed on clothing.

One thing I like about this bag is the section that says, "Anyone care to doodle".
