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.

Kenya Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Red and Black

KQ updates its bag to be "The Pride of Africa". Lions everywhere are completely discounted.

Kenya Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2014

Print or Image Color: Red, Gold, Navy, Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Kenya Airways invests in bag design, introducing Green, Red and Gold lanyards. They also call themselves "The Pride of Africa". On the bottom of the bag it says

WELCOME ABOARD!
We hope you don't have to use this.

Which I think is a quite decent sentiment.

Khalifa Airways

I'm not sure which of the Khalifa's in the museum preceded the other. This variant is a severely downsized logo, but substantively the same as the 2002.

This bag looks a lot like Air Algerie with a turkey-vulture logo.

Kingfisher

Very plain, very generic Indian Bag that looks just like Go Air without a logo.

Kish Air

Aww, cute. A mother slug and its 3 babies looking for the Golden Delicious apple. But she's headed in the wrong direction! I guess even the life of a slug is hard in Iran.

KLM

According to vomit expert, Nancy Shufeldt, This has instructions in Dutch. That is pretty unusual and I don't know where is comes from but I am guessing some small South African airline or maybe a charter service airline from one of the Dutch islands in the Caribbean. It is not from any of the regular Dutch Airlines travelling out of Holland. Peter Lommers disagrees and maintains that it is from KLM or KLM Cityhopper in the 80s. J. van Driel agrees, that it was a KLM from used until the early 80s.

Big time collector, Thomas Homer Goetz claims it's from the Dutch Antillean Airlines. I wouldn't be surprised if it was used on both.

Reproduction expert (?) Joey Cornelissen from the Netherlands says, "This isn't a sickness bag. You know women use this when they are in their period. You probarbly will know what I mean. It mostly hangs in Bathrooms at restaurants. I heard about your site on Dutch television and I thought let's look. And when I saw this back I read the instructions in Dutch, because I'm Dutch. It's a bag for women to throw there 'dirty' press-on panty-liners in. So not a bag to throw up in. "

Putting all doubt to rest, former premier big-time collector Ben Guttery passes his expert opinion that it is KLM, and so it is noted as such.

Identical to the other old KLM bag, but the bottom of this bag says it was printed in the Netherlands. Important information indeed!

Front and back are the same on this bag.

Identical to the other old KLM bag, but this one sports an advertisement for Primatour motion sickness remedy on the bottom of the bag. And just in case this isn't enough of a drug fix for you, the folds try to sell you Afluvit (for colds and flu) and Pestex Insecticide, just in case the KLM coach seats are suddenly overrun by termites or praying mantises.

KLM

Approximate Vintage: 1994

Print or Image Color: Blue + well, Blue

KLM somehow justifies incurring printing costs for two nearly indistinguishable shades of blue. They did a nice job in designing a crown out of 6 simple geometrical shapes.

Identical to other 1994 bag EXCEPT this one has a straight edge at the top instead of a serrated one.

Whoa! KLM decided to put their name back on the bag. Because remember, it's all about product placement!

Ever the marketing pioneer, KLM decided to put their name on the bottom instead of the front! Will the madness never end?

Christian notes a linguistic change in Dutch. The word Prullezakje has been changed to Prullenzakje. What is the point of that???

Dutch speaker Carl-Cyril Dreue to the rescue with the answer: Dutch changed it's official spelling in 2002, so there's your answer!

Anyway, if you look at the revamped bottom of the bag, you'll see the retro abstract guy throwing garbage out, originally popularized by a mid-70s Qantas bag.

Christian notes a change on the bag's bottom. The English is actually much better than it formerly was.

Christian notes another change on the bag's bottom. Now KLM is part of SkyService and the executives that brokered the alliance felt a need to push their ego on everyone by changing the bottom of the barf bag!
