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.

Korean Air Lines

Received From: Ralph Riffenburgh
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag harkens back to a time when the airline referred to themselves as KAL and still printed a wacky logo on the bag.

Identical to other bag except has blocks printed on the back.

KAL is wearing a witches hat!

Korean Air Lines

Received From: Jo Boyd
Print or Image Color: Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
Like the other older Korean Air Lines bag, this bag harkens back to a time when the carrier referred to themselves as KAL and still printed a wacky logo on the bag. Very tall and thin with absolutely no closing mechanism, other than "folding toward you", which seems like a really silly thing to print on a plastic bag that is incapable of being folded.

I'm not really sure how old this bag is. My guess is 1972 but it could be early 80s based upon design. Another great old bag from the Andrew Angel collection.

Ktt MTR

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Debbie Chung
Print or Image Color: Red, Navy, White
Background / Bag Color: Blue, Navy
This bag was taken from an MTR train (Ktt) that runs from Hong Kong to Guangzhon, China. Pretty fancy for a train.

This bag was taken from an MTR train (Ktt - Kowloon Through Train) that runs from Hong Kong to Guangzhon, China. Pretty fancy for a train. I like that it says Fold Backward

Kunming Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Received From: Xusheng Chen
Print or Image Color: White, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: Yellow, White
Very light and understated yellow colors on this bag featuring a peacock. Pretty much every Kunming flight starts or ends in Kunming China.

Kuwait Airways

Got to love the art deco flying wishbone logo.

Kuwait Airways

Kuwait: Home of the flying wishbone. Or is that some wacky Arabic character?

Kuwait Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: Black, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
"Waste Bag" was too language dependent so now they just print a trash can on the bag with the cheery "Wish you a Pleasant Flight" sentiment.

L'Oréal

Approximate Vintage: 1988
Received From: Jim Thompson
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
There's nothing quite like protest barf bag. This bag was created in order to send a message of protest to cosmetics giant L'Oréal and get them to stop experimenting on animals. The bag requires a 25 cent stamp, so that means this bag was created some time between 1988 and 1991. The bag says:

L'Oréal tortures animals in its testing labs! Skin and hair-care products are smeared on the raw, shaved backs of rabbits and force-fed to rats. It's enough to make you sick.

What you can do

  1. Carefully remove this bag from the magazine.
  2. Put a 25¢ stamp in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Write a letter tof protest. Tell L'Oréal you won't buy thier products until they stop testing on animals.
  4. Insert the letter into the bag, tape the bag shut and send it in!

LACSA

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to other 1997 Lacsa except the stars in the fold are half way up the bag.

LACSA

Approximate Vintage: 1997

Background / Bag Color: White
Costa Rican Airline. Cute cartoonish airplane logo. Has stars in the fold at the bottom of the bag.

Lacsa

Received From: Kim Decker
Print or Image Color: Blue, Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Back in the older days, once proud Lacsa proclaimed their airline name on the front and back of the bag. However in the 90s, they decided to relegate it to the bottom of the bag.

LACSA

Approximate Vintage: 1975
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Great old Costa Rican bag that has a flying sunflower logo that looks a bit like a Star Trek Federation logo. An American made bag ... so you know it's old.

Ladeco

Received From: Mike Roselle
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
I don't know what cuidadosamente means, but it seems like it should mean 'two city-ish'.

Ladeco

Received From: Ken Costilow
Print or Image Color: Bold Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I obtained this from Ken during the great Dallas Air Sickness Bag swap of 1999 at Momo's restaurant. Neither of us has been to Chile, however.

Lads Night Out, Crazy Coyote Games

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Sally Davis
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is part of a stag night kit called "Lad's Night Out", that comes with a fake beer can, dice, name tags, a coke mirror (yes really) and this sickbag. I like the cool cartoon coyote on it.

Laker Airways

Received From: Steven James
Print or Image Color: Red and Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Stewardess is capitalized, probably as a concession in labor talks. Features a picture of a paper airplane.

LAM

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Very plain bag from Mozambique with a very plain logo. If you picked up the bag upside-down, you might incorrectly guess you were on W7 airlines.
