Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Jerry Borowick
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

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.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Roger Macrae
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Another year, another bag for Air China. This design is sleeker and sexier than previous versions.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: YL Tan
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: Pink
Pretty much the same as the other 2003 Air China bag, except this bag is much smaller and has a PINK background. Very soothing, I understand.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Churchill Franklin
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Air China rearranges their bag again, for no particular reason it seems to me.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Ray Cranfield
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is almost identical to the 2003 bag except the ticker on the front is offset a bit and the rectangle on the adhesive strip on the back is red.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Bill McClory
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This design is identical to the 2003 design, except they left off the "open" directive on the front of the bag.

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Bill McClory
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
This design is identical to the 2003 design, except for the new purple tear strip.

This bag is identical to the other 2007 bag except in the gusset of this bag you find Chinese Characters, not the English letter "A".

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2009
Received From: Marcus Johns
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Same as the 2007 version except the "Open" instruction now has an arrow next to it. Plus, there is a blue dashed line at the top where the scoring is. Thanks for the improvements, Air China!

Air China

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Blue, Red
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
This bag is identical to the other 2007 Air China bag except the gusset contains the English letter "A" instead of 2 Chinese characters (Ching and Watashi?)

Air Columbus

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is an incredibly cheesy bag that the designers just gave up on. You can hardly even read the company name because the reverse-text is so ill advised. Bag sports a huge rectangle with, get this, NOTHING in it. Why have the rectangle at all? Someone at the (now defunct) Air Columbus might be able to tell you.

You might be tempted to guess that this carrier serves Columbus, Georgia, but it's actually a defunct Portugeuse airline.

Air Comet

Approximate Vintage: 2013
Received From: Vidas Vekerotas
Print or Image Color: Navy, Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Eerily similar to the Sky Air bag. OK, maybe it's not, but it does feature the same colors.

Air Congo

Approximate Vintage: 1971
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: Tan
The Congo changed its name to Zaire in 1971, so just for the hell of it, I am classifying this as a 1971 version even though it could be earlier. I'm guessing that few people could correct me, but I hope someone does! Seriously though ... Congo!

Air Corsica

Approximate Vintage: 2016
Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: Blue, Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
Unremarkable bag from Air Corsica. Features the Sweatband Head from former CCM, Air Corsica's predecessor.

Air Deccan

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Edmund Thuysbaert
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
The logo on this bag looks like someone stuck their hands in front of a film projector hoping to make the shadow look like a bird.

Air Do

Received From: Toshiaki Anan
Print or Image Color: Blue, White
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
I think they should call this airline Hairdo for no particular reason. The pictograph seems to prohibit lamps.

Air Dolomiti

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Frank Mullini
Print or Image Color: Teal, Navy, Gray
Background / Bag Color: Baby Blue
This one is really cool because of its refreshing mint background color. Pretty nice for its simplicity.

Air Dolomiti

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Teal, Navy, Gray
Background / Bag Color: Baby Blue
Same refreshing mint color, but the text is now all printed on the bottom of the bag.
