Xingjiang Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 1996
Received From: Mary Beth McNamara
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Like almost every other Chinese bag, it's blue on white.

Xinhua Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: Blue and White
The first thing I noticee about this 'Oxford Shirt' bag, is that they recommend you open the bag with scissors (or forceps?). I'm not too sure about safety regulations in China, but scissors are not allowed on any USA flights, and even if they were, who would bring them just in case they have to open a barf bag?

XL

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: Denir Camargo
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I suppose this airline could actually be called "40 Airlines" if you're a Roman Numeral weenie, however XL is the name of a now defunct German carrier.

XL Airways France

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue, Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Similar to the previous version of XL only moreso. They added some tear off strip instructions plus added "Airways France" to more fully describe XL.

Y2K

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Bob Jones
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Brown
I bought this bag on eBay for $10. This is now the most expensive bag I've ever bought. It's just a brown paper bag with the words "The Official Y2K Barf Bag" stenciled on it. It's cheesy and wasn't worth the cost, but I won't disparage Bob Jones about it, because he didn't post a photo of it and I bid on it sight unseen. Oh well, at it's not like I collect rare coins and bid $20,000 for some coin sight unseen.

Yangon Airways

Received From: Paul Choong
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: Tan
You just have to love any airline with a winged, stenciled, red elephant. It's reminiscent of operation Dumbo Drop. Don't you just love any word that has 'yang' in it?

Yangon Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2013
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue, Black
Background / Bag Color: White, Yellow, Green, Red
A very colorful bag from Myanmar. I love how the bag says "You're Safe With Us"! It's kind of like a restaurant whose slogan is "Our food won't make you sick"!

Yelcho

Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: Brown
Yes, this is a plain paper lunch sack. Although it may not be a bona-fide sickbag, this bag was obtained from Yelcho (Belcho?), a Chilean Army ship in Antarctica.

Yemenia

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Manfred Kleber
Print or Image Color: Red and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Nice art deco sperm logo -- probably a throwback to the time when the airline was called "Semenia". The blocky Arabic writing looks something like a mall's floor plan.

Identical to 2009 version except there stars in the folds instead of some weird eyeglasses logo.

Yeti Airways

Received From: Christopher Wren
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
I LOVE the logo which sports a big foot (as well as confusing DNA strands). The bag exhorts you to 'Experience the Shangri-La', which I thought was in China.

Yeti Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Thomas Homer Goetz
Print or Image Color: Green, Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
I LOVE the logo which sports a big foot (as well as confusing DNA strands). The famous barfing lady from Buddha Air appears on the back. Soon she'll be more popular than the IEEE lady.

Yeti Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: Green, Brown
Background / Bag Color: White
The coolest part of this bag is what you can't see. There is printing inside this bag! It's identical to what's on the exterior, but wow!

And it features the monochrome barfing lady with straightforward uses such as vomitting, spitting, and throwing baby's excreta away.

This bag is the similar to the previous versions except the text has changed. Now the bag is for vomiting only, not for spitting or peels like the previous version says.

Yichang Transportation

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Although there is no airport in the city of Yichang near the Three Gorges Dam, the transportation system (bus? rail?) must be of sufficient lack of quality to merit this bag.

Yugoslavian Generic

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This is quite possibly the best generic bag ever conceived. Clearly old and written in Serbian, it features a Eurocentric globe. Krstarica.com had a tough time translating this bag.

Croatian Barf-meister Danijel to the rescue with a translation. According to Danjiel, the box says, "If you don't handle the journey well, please use this bag". Under the picture it says, "Not to be used for food". (Prehrambene artikle means somthing like 'edible products')

Yunnan Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Henk Van Den Os
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag looks eerily similar to China Yunnan Airlines. Could it be that Yunnan now reflects a more international carrier?

Zambia Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: L. Jay Labe
Print or Image Color: Green and Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
Comes with a sylized bent-necked eagle that looks like a Z.

Zambia Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1988
Received From: Kim Decker
Print or Image Color: Green, Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
Same as other Zambia bag except this has a serrated top.

Zambia Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1970
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Green, Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Another great old bag from the archives of Andrew Angel. Not surprisingly all in English as it says in the gusset: SUPPLIED BY INTERNATIONAL AERADIO (LONDON) LTD.
