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.

USAir

Approximate Vintage: 1984
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Red
Kard-O-Pak Bottom.

USAir

Approximate Vintage: 1992
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Generic looking. Bag seems to indicate that after you throw up, you disappear!

UTA

Approximate Vintage: 1980
Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Brown
Background / Bag Color: White
Excellent old French bag with a huge flower like monstrosity that's oddly compelling.

UTA

Approximate Vintage: 1981
Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Brown
Background / Bag Color: White
Excellent old French bag with a not-quite-perfect English translation.

UTA

Approximate Vintage: 1990
Received From: Ralph Riffenburgh
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Either Uta Pippig has her own barf bag, or the University of Texas at Arlington does. The bag tries so hard to please. If you don't feel comfortable -- call the hostess. If you're claustrophobic -- no scratch that -- if you worry about claustrophobia -- call your hostess! She's apparently omnipotent. One other note. It appears the bag has a progress bar on the bottom that has not quite completed its download.

Also note, Morquin-Muguet Manufacturer

UTA (Union De Transportes Aeriens)

Approximate Vintage: 1969
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: Tan
An enormous old and rare bag from UTA. I'm really just guessing on the date of issue.

UTA (Union de Transports Aériens)

Approximate Vintage: 1973
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: Tan, Blue
Very similar to its 1969 predecessor except the airplane has changed ... it has a different set of tail fins. Also, the stars in the background of UTA logo have disappeared.

Uzbekistan Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Manfred Kleber
Print or Image Color: Gold and White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
This bag is voted most likely to have been designed by an etch-a-sketch. Looks like it's covered in pubic hair, kind of.

Uzbekistan Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Rich Stevens
Print or Image Color: Gray and White
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is a Gigiyenick Paket, which sounds like it's a hygienic packet only for someone named Gigi.

Uzbekistan Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: Gerd Clemens
Print or Image Color: Gray and White
Background / Bag Color: White
Same as the 2006 version except the airline name and instructions are only printed on the front of this bag.

Varig

Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
When you are finished throwing up in this bag, hand it to the Stewardess. Do NOT hand it to a man! Made by Poliem.

When you are finished throwing up in this bag, hand it to the Stewardess. Do NOT hand it to a man! Made by Plasticogeral (you can kind of see this if you look at the printing inside the translucent bag.)

When you are finished throwing up in this bag, hand it to the Flight Attendant. You can hand it to a woman OR a man!

Darker blue without useless black bar at the top left, but has numbers at bottom right.

Missing the useless black bar at the top left, missing Poliem at bottom right.

You can't see it here, but this bag was manufactured by Plascabi.

This bag is identical to this other bag except they moved the blue block from the left to the right. Another pointless Varig change. The only difference is that this bag does NOT say Plascabi in the lower crease.

Still another Varig style. This one has Poliem on the left bottom of the bag.

Yet another Varig style. This one with the cursive writing, like their Rio-Sul subsidiary.

Hey, a South American carrier switched from all plastic to waxed paper! The bag has many instructions in Portugese including, 'Com O Grampo', which I think means 'give bag to your grandfather'. FLASH: Angry Portugeuse have flooded my mailbox claiming that Com O Grampo means 'with a tab', although Eva, a Brazilian waitress at Bertucci's claims that it means you're pregnant.
