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.

Nordeste

As with other similar bags, such as Rio-Sul, this bag has the not-all-that-fancy script that scream "Varig affiliate".

Nordic Ferry Services

This bag features some kind of Top 10 List in some Nordic language that I don't understand. Plus, there's a really cool map of the ferry system destinations on the back of the bag.

Northeast Airline Inc.

Received From: Nick Ginandes

Back in the '70s, I remember an airline called Yellowbird. They had an aggressive advertising campaign, but I never seemed to hear anything about the airline in the ensuing years. After doing some searching on the Internet, I have come to believe that Yellowbird was actually a Northeast Airline plane painted yellow for marketing reasons. And now I have the barf bag. Oh Happy Day!

One interesting thing to note about this bag: There is space for 6 gin rummy players. Now can someone explain to me just how 6 people could possibly play cards together in an airplane?

As usual, ask and some amazingly altruistic angel swoops in with the answer. Sally Sullivan aka Dr. Dialtone says, "In the old DC-6 they had a lounge in the very back of the plane that people sat in, in a half moon shaped seat, I believe that it could fit between 6 and 8 people. I was about 9 years old when I flew on one but remember it was a real treat to sit back there. The bag you have would fit that area but is probably pre "Yellowbird". I filled more than my fair share of those bags but never spent much time reading them as there was never anything written on the inside which was all I ever saw! Northeast used the Yellowbird song and colors for its East coast flights and advertised extensively on TV with John Cameron Swazey from Miami. The ads ran heavily in the Boston Metro area and New York in the mid to late 60's."

Bob Dingley of Pace, FL has more concrete info on Northeast Airlines. "They served the New England area with DC-3's until the 1960's. They used a blue & white paint job. They acquired Fairchild FH227's about the mid 60's. Then they got a single B-707 for the Boston-Miami run. Sometime after 1966, they picked up a few B-727's that happened to be painted yellow. They were called "Yellowbirds." The rest of the fleet stayed blue and white. About 1972, NEA merged with DELTA and lost their identity."

Northwest (Cabin Attendant)

Approximate Vintage: 1986
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Same as previous Northwest Orient Bags, but missing logo. This bag says "Cabin Attendant", which was quickly changed to "Flight Attendant" in subsequent bags.

By the way, vomit aficionado Neal Henderson says that the dark color of the bag is a cost saving device so that people don't use the bag for scratch paper. Pointy Bottom.

This is my oldest bag. Its age is obvious when you look at it. It's got a really cool 50's-like Eagle logo and states simply that it's "For Your Convenience."

For some reason, Northwest Orient called itself the Fan-Jet Airline. Is this like Letterman's Fan-Man? Wouldn't Air Conditioning-Jet sell better? The questions abound.

Actually, I have no idea what year this comes from, so I guessed 1965. I could be 10 years off. Still, you can feel the age on this bag, back when Northwest considered itself the Fan Jet Airline, whatever the hell that is.

This is an "In a while you will be fine" bag. The front and the back are almost identical, but the back has an airplane sticking out its tongue emoticon.

What an ugly, ugly Tunisian bag. Gray on gray. You can hardly read it because the contrast is so bad and the color is so repulsive.

Nouvelair (Helios)

Much like Viva, they decided that a snail best represents their airline. And not as nice a snail as Viva's either. Says "Helios" in the folds.

This bag is the exact same as the other Nouvelair bag, except there are stars in the gusset. The other bag has the word Helios in the gusset.
