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.

NFD

Received From: Reiner Schulz
Print or Image Color: Black and Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
Nice defunct airline. Does NFD stand for No Flights, Danke? Or maybe, Nich Flug, Danke?

Collector Juergen Klein to the rescue. He says, NFD stands for "Nürnberger Flugdienst", a defunct airline that operated from the German town Nürnberg in Bavaria.

NHT Linhas Aereas

Received From: Denir Camargo
Print or Image Color: Orange, Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Another plastic Brazilian bag, this one from a carrier that started operations in 2006. I have no idea what NHT stands for, but I do like that the logo is printed on a kite.

NHT was sold an will change its name to Brava Linhas Aereas but for the moment operates under the old name NHT.

Nigeria Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1967
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: Tan
An enormous old and rare bag from an airline that ceased operation in 2003. The bag wouldn't even fit on the scanner -- not even close.

Night Of The Living Dead

Received From: Barbara Milford
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Tan
"They won't stay dead!" exclaims this bag. Cheesy printing makes this look a homemade short run, but who really knows? The movie doesn't sound half bad though as it "Pits the dead against the living in a struggle for survival", which begs the question, what does survival mean to a dead person?

NLM CityHopper

Received From: Matthias Koch
Print or Image Color: Brown, White
Background / Bag Color: Brown, White
A nice old bag that instructs you to Dichtvouwen, which I think means fold towards you.

NLM CityHopper

Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: Blue, White
Background / Bag Color: Blue, White
According to Albert, NLM stands for Nederlandse Luchtvaartmaatschappy. Luckily, some marketing oriented guru shortened it so people could pronounce it, much like TNT for Trinitrotoluene. This bag has the onomotopoeic term "Luchtziektezak" printed right on it.

According to Albert, NLM stands for Nederlandse Luchtvaartmaatschappy. Luckily, some marketing oriented guru shortened it so people could pronounce it, much like TNT for Trinitrotoluene.

If you examine the older NLM bag, you'll see that whereas they used to advertise that they were "Friendly and on time", they are now "Fast and friendly", but definitely not on time anymore!

Noble Air

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue and Gold
Background / Bag Color: White
Now this is what I'm talking about. A seemingly minor design choice is the difference between hot and not. In Noble's case, the bird in the classy starred circle logo is far nice looking than the off-center checkmark looking logo of Regional Airlines, even though both bags are trying to accomplish the same thing. Unfortunately, the excellent logo was insufficient to save this long defunct Turkish Airline.

Nordeste

Received From: Denir Camargo
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
As with other similar bags, such as Rio-Sul, this bag has the not-all-that-fancy script that scream "Varig affiliate".

Nordic Ferry Services

Approximate Vintage: 2013
Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Blue, Red
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
This bag features some kind of Top 10 List in some Nordic language that I don't understand. Plus, there's a really cool map of the ferry system destinations on the back of the bag.

Northeast Airline Inc.

Received From: Nick Ginandes
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Back in the '70s, I remember an airline called Yellowbird. They had an aggressive advertising campaign, but I never seemed to hear anything about the airline in the ensuing years. After doing some searching on the Internet, I have come to believe that Yellowbird was actually a Northeast Airline plane painted yellow for marketing reasons. And now I have the barf bag. Oh Happy Day!

One interesting thing to note about this bag: There is space for 6 gin rummy players. Now can someone explain to me just how 6 people could possibly play cards together in an airplane?

As usual, ask and some amazingly altruistic angel swoops in with the answer. Sally Sullivan aka Dr. Dialtone says, "In the old DC-6 they had a lounge in the very back of the plane that people sat in, in a half moon shaped seat, I believe that it could fit between 6 and 8 people. I was about 9 years old when I flew on one but remember it was a real treat to sit back there. The bag you have would fit that area but is probably pre "Yellowbird". I filled more than my fair share of those bags but never spent much time reading them as there was never anything written on the inside which was all I ever saw! Northeast used the Yellowbird song and colors for its East coast flights and advertised extensively on TV with John Cameron Swazey from Miami. The ads ran heavily in the Boston Metro area and New York in the mid to late 60's."

Bob Dingley of Pace, FL has more concrete info on Northeast Airlines. "They served the New England area with DC-3's until the 1960's. They used a blue & white paint job. They acquired Fairchild FH227's about the mid 60's. Then they got a single B-707 for the Boston-Miami run. Sometime after 1966, they picked up a few B-727's that happened to be painted yellow. They were called "Yellowbirds." The rest of the fleet stayed blue and white. About 1972, NEA merged with DELTA and lost their identity."

Northwest (Cabin Attendant)

Approximate Vintage: 1986
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Same as previous Northwest Orient Bags, but missing logo. This bag says "Cabin Attendant", which was quickly changed to "Flight Attendant" in subsequent bags.

By the way, vomit aficionado Neal Henderson says that the dark color of the bag is a cost saving device so that people don't use the bag for scratch paper. Pointy Bottom.

Northwest Orient

This is my oldest bag. Its age is obvious when you look at it. It's got a really cool 50's-like Eagle logo and states simply that it's "For Your Convenience."

Northwest Orient

For some reason, Northwest Orient called itself the Fan-Jet Airline. Is this like Letterman's Fan-Man? Wouldn't Air Conditioning-Jet sell better? The questions abound.
