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.

Britannia

Approximate Vintage: 1992
Received From: Graham
Print or Image Color: Dark Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Ah yes, the fat to thin striping paradigm.

Britannia (no thumb tab)

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: Martin Powley
Exactly the same as the other Britannia bag, but this one has no thumb tab. The other one does. I am such a loser for distinguishing this. In fact, it's so hard to see in the scan that I used the same image for both bags. Sorry.

Britannia (thumb tab)

Dark Blue Logo on White. They cleaned the design of this bag up nicely.

British Airtours

Received From: Burkhard Walther
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This simplistic bag reminds us that British Airtours didn't always have a bent staple logo.

British Airtours

Approximate Vintage: 1987
Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
The silly red angled underline seems eerily similar to that of British Air. I assume therefore that British Airtours was just a part of British Air.

British Airtours

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Roger Macrae
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White and Gray
A monochromatic version of the previous model, even more dull than its predecessor -- if that's possible.

British Airtours

Received From: Peter Brown
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This simplistic bag reminds us that British Airtours didn't always have a bent staple logo.

Exactly the same as the other British Airtours except this one is far narrower.

British Airways' first attempt at a Barf Bag after changing over from BOAC is unremarkable

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1983
Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
On this particular bag, the German words identifying what this is (Wasserdichter Abrallbehälter) takes up 2 lines, unlike subsequent models.

British Airways

The instructions on the back look just fine, but not to the British Air management. See subsequent models...

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1984
Received From: AJ Jacobs
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
The instructions on the back look just fine, but not to the British Air management. See subsequent models... Identical to other 1984 bag except this one has a thumb tab.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1985
Received From: Richard David Glueck
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Same as 1984 version, but the German instructions were looking a little cramped, necessitating a 3rd line.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1986
Received From: Ken Pugh
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Savvy British Marketing moguls decided that German instructions really requires 3 lines of instructions instead of 2 as on the 1985 model.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1987
Received From: Albert Oosenbrug
Print or Image Color: Red and Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
The reproduction of a highly detailed British coat-of-arms and crest in a 1 cm x 1 cm space looks a lot like the bad discount tattoo you got at 3 AM.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1989
Received From: David Goldberg
This is EXACTLY the same as the other 1989 BA bag, except it has a straight top, instead of a serrated one. I know, picky, picky, picky.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1989

Striped bag! Radical departure for British Air, revoked soon thereafter.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1990
Received From: Mike Roselle
Print or Image Color: Black and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Logo at top of bag.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Jos Groen
Print or Image Color: Black and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
In a pointless maneuver, they decided to move the logo to the bottom of the bag.

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Marty St. George
Print or Image Color: Black and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Almost, but not quite identical with the 1995 bag. The French and Spanish usage instructions were altered slightly. Oh those wacky Brits!

British Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Joyce Tabenkin
The fastidious Brits strike again! This bag is ever so similar to the one listed above, EXCEPT for one thing. The previously omitted period in the 18th language (Chinese? [Yes, Chinese according to Y.L. Tan]) listed on the back, is now present. Give the person who corrected that error a raise!
