The newer, sportier version with the striped maple leaf. However, unlike the striped maple tree, the stripes go horizontal instead of vertical.

Air Canada

Approximate Vintage: 2011
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Just like every other Air Canada bag except for the syringe warning at the bottom of the bag that says, "Please ask your flight attendant for the proper disposal of a used needle." Really? Who can get needles through security? And who is shooting up on planes?
One other thing to note: While there is the needle with a line through it meaning "No needles", there's a circle with no line through it with a guy throwing up.

Air Canada

Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to other similar Air Canada bags, except the bottom only sports PS 2051 and is void of Gunter ACS Pacman as well as De Ster star.

Air Caraïbes

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Blue, Green, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: White
A clean and beautiful design whose palm fronds remind you that you'll soon be getting over your motion sickness on a tropical island.

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Jean-Charles Dayot
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
The design is simpler now, displaying a saw palmetto behind the letter 'A'.

Air Ceylon

Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Tan
OMG Are you kidding me? Air Ceylon! Ceylon hasn't been a country since 1972 so you know this bag is old. Not surprisingly, it's one of my favorites, hardly any English on it at all.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2001

Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is identical to the earlier Air China with a red seal except the middle Chinese character has changed! What could this new bag say? Is it political correctness?

Once again, a museum visitor to the rescue. Bag scholar Robin Gomi says, "The middle character is a "simplified" version of the older complicated Chinese character. The three Chinese characters on the bottom combine to mean "clean and pure bag". Thanks for clearing that up, Robin!

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Mike Roselle
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
A sleeker, sexier Air China than proffered in the past.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Marty St. George
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Exactly the same as other 2002 Air China, except somebody's graphic design layout program went haywire. A monstrosity appears on the bag because the scale of the arrow is much too large.
