OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 1992
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gray
Radical color scheme change. Went to gray, which totally is unlike any other Delta innovation.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 1996
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Small logo. "Air Lines" in a lighter blue.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
"Air Lines" in blue. Changed closing mechanism to peel away instead of twist tie

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
For some unknown reason, Delta got sick of advertising that it was an airline and excised the words "Air Lines" from the bag.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Another year, another bag. Tirelessly tweaking their design to attain barf bag perfection, Delta trims the budget by excising red, leaving the singular blue color gracing the bag. This is the 12th unique Delta design in the museum.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I can't tell if this is just a registration error or it's a deliberate design, but the text on this bag is far lower than its counterpart of the same vintage.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I'm all for bag diversity, but this is ridiculous. Delta unveils its 3rd bag variation of 2003, this time a plastic offering. Wisely, the instructions tell you to peel tab away 'gently', good advice if the bag is full.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2008

Background / Bag Color: White
After a 5 year hiatus, Delta changes its design again, this time to the Arnold-like "I'll be back", a double-entendre that functions as a seat holder. They also exhort you to "Feel Better".

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2009
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I'm not sure what the vintage of this bag is -- I'm calling it 2009 -- but it's identical to the 3rd variation of 2003 EXCEPT there's now a little flower on the front.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is identical to the 2003 Delta Plastic bags EXCEPT if you look at the logo, the lower half is now a pointy triangle instead of rounded parabola.

I never would have noticed it, but bagmeister David Shomper sure did!

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
A few years later, LK industries (?) decides that it needs to promote the fact that it's a registered trademark, even though it holds the same patent as before.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 2016
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
Delta decides to re-brand itself as baby friendly by making the barf bag a "Baby Care" bag. It says:
  • Changing tables in lavatories
  • Never flush diapers or bag
  • Place diaper in bag and deposit in waste container


Fortunately, it's still for barfing as it says the following on the back: FEEL BETTER
  • Never flush bags
  • Use for motion sickness
  • Deposit bag in waste container

Denver Museum of Nature & Science

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Jennifer Navarrete
Background / Bag Color: Green
An excellent bag released by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. This bag was used to mail out press releases for their exhibit called "Grossology", which runs from Oct. 7, 2005 - January 1, 2006. They have a great catchphrase: "Something's Coming Up at the Museum!", along with a baby barfing.

Serendipity brought this bag. I was interviewed about the barf bags on Denver's 99.5-FM The Mountain. Fortunately, they had just received this press release, so they offered me the bag. Hats off to them.

Deutsche BA

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Dr. Walter Brinker
Print or Image Color: White, Red, Orange
Background / Bag Color: Navy
This bag reminds you 390 times that this is indeed a wastebag.

Deutsche BA

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Thomas Homer Goetz
Print or Image Color: Black and White
Background / Bag Color: Orange and White
Nice color scheme -- if it's Halloween. Perfect bag for Trick or Treating.

Deutsche BA

Approximate Vintage: 2001

Background / Bag Color: Orange
Can you say Orange? I knew that you could.

Deutsche Seereederei

Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: Tan
Old Sea Sickness Bag. I don't really know if it's from Deutsche Seereederei as stated (whatever that is) but it's still a cool bag.

DFDS Seaways

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Thomas Bernhardt
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
An unbelievably beautiful and detailed bag. You actually get the feeling you're on a cruise by looking at the bag. Scandinavians have cornered the market on beautiful design. The attention to detail in the ship's reflection shows how much loving care went into the bag, not to mention how they coddle the passenger by telling them that even the toughest sailors get sick. This bag is almost identical to its Scandinavian Seaways (A DFDS Company) predecessor. An interesting thing to note is that they misspell 'fatigue' as 'fatique'.

Dinar

Received From: Denir Camargo
Print or Image Color: Blue and Green
Background / Bag Color: White
What a cruel joke to the sick passenger. The airline's name is Dinar -- or is Dinar the contents of the bag? Interesting Flying Toilet Seat logo. Oddly enough, the Dinar's donor's name is Denir.
