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.

Swissair (No Switzerland Bottom)

Approximate Vintage: 1991
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Identical to all the others except the bottom does NOT say Form 2312.

Swissair (Separated Bottom)

Approximate Vintage: 1991
Received From: Herb Schingoethe
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Identical to all the others except the bottom separates ELAG from Form 2312.

Swissair (Upper ELAG 2312 Bottom Switched)

Approximate Vintage: 1991
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Moved the bottom text up.

Swissair (Upper ELAG 2312 Bottom)

Approximate Vintage: 1991
Received From: Kim Fitzpatrick
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Looks like a pleasing plain blue bag, but look in the folds, and the word 'Swissair' magically appears.

Swissair (Upper ELAG Bottom)

Approximate Vintage: 1991
Received From: Peter Brown
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Looks like a pleasing plain blue bag, but look in the folds, and the word 'Swissair' magically appears. Identical to all the other Swissair bags, but the bottom does NOT say form 2312 and ELAG is printed on the top half of the bottom.

Swissair Upside Down

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Danny Meyer
Much like the famous upside-down postage stamp, Swissair releases the upside-down air sickness bag! Warning: when you're doubled over ready to throw up, make sure sure to remember to throw up in the BOTTOM of the bag!

Syrian Air

Background / Bag Color: White
My favorite part of this bag is that it comes with your very own scary jack-o-lantern stencil of a, of a ... well I don't know, but I'm sure it's scary! Who would have thought pumpkins would be so ubiquitous in Syria?

Syrianair

Approximate Vintage: 2005

Oh no! It's the attack of the flying calamari, a battalion of which grace this bag.

Oh no! It's the attack of the flying calamari logo.

In a bold move, Syrianair clarifies that it's actually "Syrian Arab Airlines" as opposed to something like "Syrian Berber Airlines". I know I was confused before they made the change.

t'way

I can't for the life of me guess why they named the airline t'way. According to Wikipedia, there are only 6 planes in their fleet.

TAA Trans Australia Airlines

Received From: Chris Bischoff
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Brown
Excellent depiction of a kangaroo on a vector, hopping his way to the bathroom to throw up. Vomit Enthusiast Neill Murray says, "The TAA bag (Trans Australian Airlines) is actually from TAA (Trans Australia Airlines) – no ‘n’ in ‘Australia’. When TAA changed its name in 1985 to Australian Airlines the ‘n’ was added." Thanks Neill!

Same as the other TAA bag except there's a blue bar on the back. Probably not worth calling a variation, but oh well

TAAG Angola Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Steve Jones
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Orange
Probably one of the coolest bags in all of Angola. The horns of the frowning ram curl all the way around its head, much like the fingernails of people who don't clip them for ten years at a time.

TAAG Angola Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2005

Background / Bag Color: Orange
Identical to earlier TAAG bag, except the visually non-contrasting white on orange scheme has been replaced by Halloween colors, black on orange.

Taca

Approximate Vintage: 1989
Received From: Jack Rupard

Background / Bag Color: Blue
I finally have one of these -- it's a long story!

Take-A-Chance-Airlines. Very basic blue bag with Sabena-like oval around logo.

Anyway, first I purchased one of these in an eBay auction from Jack Rupard. Life was good. Then I received a 2nd one as part of Christoph Vogel's collection. When I listed this bag as a swappable item, two collectors battled for it. I agreed to send it to one collector, but the other collector claimed I had promised it to him (I had not, we were negotiating a several bag trade, but he assumed this one was a given). In order to preserve honor, I sent him the bag. So I had none. And then Jack Rupard came calling again asking for a stack of safety cards in exchange for all the bags he sent. So I was out the bag, plus many safety cards. Finally, I got the gift that keeps on taking from Matthias Koch, purchasing it over eBay for almost 30 Euros.

Taca

Central American Airline. Blue Logo and funky Red and Blue Parrots.

Taesa

Received From: Richard David Glueck
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Exactly like the other Taesa bag except this on has a slightly different font and doesn't sport the ubiquitous Propiedad De Taesa (Property of Taesa) admonition, which it felt was necessary in the subsequent model in case some other airline decided to steal their motherlode of bags.

Taesa

Received From: David George
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This carrier, which mainly serves central Mexico, is confused. For the Spanish speaking, it's just a sick bag. For English speakers, it's for Air Sickness. For the French, it's for Sea Sickness. TAESA's logo is a horribly disfigured fuselage that most airlines (except USAir) would ground immediately for safety reasons. (BTW, what's a doted line?)

TAF

Received From: Matthias Koch
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
If you hold this bag up to the mirror (or just look right through the flimsy bag from the back) this Brazilian Airline's name looks eerily like JAT, a Yugoslavian airline. Apparently either this bag is only for 'Executivos'.

TAG

Received From: Federico Mandrile
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag uses a liner the size of those bags that newspapers used to be delivered in. It spills out all over the place. According to the bottom of the bag, it's "more than a bag" (Mas que una bolsa). I have no idea what else it might be though so maybe someone can help me out here

This Guatemalan bag also says "Nuestro mejor destino es satisfacerle", which I think means that their finest destination is merely satisfactory.
