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.

ANA

Approximate Vintage: 2009
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Very similar to the 1999 version, but they eliminated the words "All Nippon Airways" plus they added a logo and date to the bottom of the bag.

According to the eBay seller, this bag is from the early 60s, which I find kind of hard to believe. I can't even verify that it's from ANA (All Nippon Airways).

If this bag were a pin stripe suit, it would be perfect for most business meetings. But since it's a barf bag, well I guess it's still perfect for most business meetings.

Anadolu Jet

Approximate Vintage: 2012

Print or Image Color: Red, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Pretty basic design with an odd font. Apparently a really good airline if you need to get around Turkey.

Anadolu Jet

Approximate Vintage: 2014

Print or Image Color: Blue, Red, Tan
Background / Bag Color: White
Similar to the 2012 model, except the logo was downsized. Plus they added the words UCMAYAN KALMASIN, which according to Google Translate means "When you fly stock". So I guess this is the airline for goats, cows and horses.

Angkor Airways

Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Purple, Gold
Background / Bag Color: White
According to this bag, the abbreviation for Angkor Airways is AKW. I like that FOLDDOTTED is one word.

ANK

Approximate Vintage: 2001

Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Olive Green
In an slavish effort to be onomotopoeic, this airline is named for the sound you make throwing up. ANK! Love the 22 peg pegboard design.

Ansett Australia

I wonder why they felt the need to say "Air Mail" on this film developing bag.

Ansett Australia

Approximate Vintage: 1995

The blue film bag, predecessor of the ubiquitous red one. Reasonably identical to the red bag, but with a different color scheme. Film offer expires in 1996.

Ansett Australia

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: Jo Boyd
The film developing offer's expiration date changed from 1997 to 1998. Prices also went up slightly. Also, the bar code has mysteriously become BO97.

National Photo and its Red Barf Bag. Ansett rolls out its CA20 bag with an expiration date of April 30, 1999.

Ansett Australia

Approximate Vintage: 2000

The film developing offer's expiration date changed from 1998 to 2000. Happily, prices have remained the same! The BO97 has changed to CA98.

The film developing offer's expiration date changed from 2000 to 2001. Happily, prices have remained the same! The CA98 has changed to CD18.

Ansett New Zealand

Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag, like the 2000 version, advertises Sea-Legs travel sickness medication (why not Air-Legs?). However, this is an older version whose front side contains different text. I'm not really sure about the lineage, so if someone could inform me, I would be ever grateful.

In a bold departure from other Oceanic bags, there are no film offers. Some designer decided to get cutesy and drop the cross bar from the A, making it look like a lambda. Perhaps they're courting the gay travelling population?

Finally, a bag that joins Alitalia in selling advertising to motion sickness drug manufacturers. Sea-Legs buys the bag and possibly a big share of the market.

AOM

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Gilles Beger
Print or Image Color: Boring Gray

This French Airline sells out to its English speaking clientele, replacing Cie Arienne Francaise with French Airlines. Quelle dommage!

A dull bag from France.

Argentina (LAPA)

Background / Bag Color: White
Actually, the gray printing is black half-tone. Don't know why the top of the G is red, but OK, if that's how they want it.
