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.

China Southern Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Stella Hammond
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
I don't know Chinese, but the 4th Chinese character (reading left to right) in the airline's name kind of looks like a guy running to throw up somewhere.

Luckily, it's resident Chinese bag expert YL Tan to the rescue. YL claims that the character in question is called a 'fang' and it means 'direction'.

China Southern Airlines

Although this looks like the 2000 version, the vitally important information '99 3 18265.8' was added to the bag's back.

China Southern Airlines

They added the all important word "Airlines" to this bag.

China Southern Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2004

China Southern totally redesigns their bag, eschewing their own name (at least in English). Bag is Water-Proofed instead of waterproof.

China Southern Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2005

Identical to the 2004 version, except there is no phone number on the back and a wire closing mechanism has been added.

China Southern Airlines Group

I guess they needed something to differentiate themselves form China Southern Airlines.

China Southwest Airlines

China Southwest Airlines

The design makes the barfer believe that they're in an old movie theatre watch the stage production of "China Southwest Airlines Air Sickness Bag".

China Southwest Chonqing Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Andy Morris
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
As if the name China Southwest wasn't specific enough, they apparently decided that they needed to add Chonqing to this specific carrier. Same wacky bird-in-circle logo as other China Southwest bags though.

China United Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 1988
Received From: Ralph Riffenburgh

Awesome old Chinese bag with the misspelled word "Cleanning". The logo is supposed to look like an airplane but is a lot closer to a toboggan.

China United Airlines

Cool but older Chinese bag (it's blue on white so of course it's older). There is an extra n in Cleanning Bag, which is pretty forgivable for people whose first language is Chinese. I do like how cuA looks like an abstract airplane.

China Wuhan Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Stella Hammond
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Confusing W-A-L letters in logo either stand for Wuhan Air Lines or Woozy After Lunch. The phone number on the back would be good to memorize and hand out to losers who hit on you.

China Xinhua Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Jerry Borowick
Standard Chinese style bag with crazy hand logo. Or is that a bird?

China Xinjiang Airlines

Received From: Richard McMains
Print or Image Color: Blue, Black, White, Green
Background / Bag Color: White, Green
This bag boldy states "Qing Jie Dai", which if used properly would demoralize any Scrabble opponent (unless they counter with Xinjiang or somesuch).

China Xinjiang Airlines (CXJAL)

China Yunnan Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Craig Richards
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Looks like every other Chinese bag except the logo is somewhat reminiscent of a bird's-eye view of a flushing toilet.

Chinese Military Transport

No English! Got to love that.

Chinese Military Transport

Approximate Vintage: 1986
Received From: Jo Boyd
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
For some reason, this 1986 bag has English, and then in 1987, they decided to do away with it. Also note that you rarely see quadrilaterals in any design that has no right angles and isn't a parallelogram of some sort.

Chinese Military Transport

This bag is a 'missing link' bag. The design is exactly the same as the 1987 version, but the color scheme is exactly the same as the 1990 version. I call this bag "Lucy" after the famed Austalopithecus.

Plane on bag seems to be making a U-turn.
