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

Received From: Tom Leist
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
You know that this bag is old because it refers to a "stewardess". Like the other minimalist big logo bag, but the bottom of this bag says Chase instead of Kard-O-Pak. Comes with a thumb tab.

You know that this bag is old because it refers to a "stewardess". Like the other minimalist big logo bag, but the bottom of this bag says Kard-O-Pak instead of Chase. No thumb tab on this bag! And by the way, the bag is textured, quite a nice touch.

This bag is Delta's first foray into international bag design. Features French and Spanish as well as English. The interesting thing is that French is printed first. Very unusual but cool.

Delta Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 1979

Only the bottom of this bag differs from the 1982 version with the polite German (which is really a 1980 version that was still in use in 1982). The bottom actually says "7-79", so it was dated for your identification convenience. Apparently, some Germans felt that the bag's instructions weren't courteous enough. In response, Delta added the word "Bitte" (please) so that passengers felt respected when throwing up.

Moved English first, but kept the bag design reasonably similar. Added German.

This bag slightly differs from its predecessor. Apparently, some Germans felt that the bag's instructions weren't courteous enough. In response, Delta added the word "Bitte" (please) so that passengers felt respected when throwing up. Note also that American Packaging changed its name to American Bag & Paper Corp.

Same, but some executive decided to dump the logo

Radical color scheme change. Went to gray, which totally is unlike any other Delta innovation.

Small logo. "Air Lines" in a lighter blue.

"Air Lines" in blue. Changed closing mechanism to peel away instead of twist tie

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

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.

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.

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.

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".

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.

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!
