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.

U-Land

Received From: Sean Chou
Mighty unfortunate name for an airline. Who would name an airline U-Land? Or U-Fly? Or U-Repair? (Hint: the Chinese) I can only conclude that U-Land is a translation gone bad. I'm surprised the bag doesn't say "Please to barf in this clean bag". Cool cursive writing and double carrick bend-like logo.

Chinese expert, Y.L. Tan says: The Chinese name is "rui lian", roughly translated "auspicious connection/link". I hate to say it, but as unfortunate a name as U-Land is, it's far better than "Auspicious connection or link" would be.

Ukraine International Airlines

A short, stout bag with some shorthand notation inside the sun-like circle.

Ukraine International Airlines

Received From: Jens-Peter Taufmann
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
I can't tell whether this pre-dates the other Ukraine International bag or not, but I'm guessing it's newer as it has gone monochrome and dropped the yellow. They also did away with upper/lower case distinctions and added more pointless scribbles in the circle.

Ukraine International Airlines

Background / Bag Color: White
This bag looks exactly like its predecessor except that the annulus around the logo is now missing. Plus the bag got much taller.

Ultra Trash

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
An amazingly well-done bag because the red lettering is raised. Very fancy!

Ultra Trash apparently produces and releases many gore movies such as 'Death By Machete' and others nobody has ever heard of. They pass these bags out to audiences. The text of the bag reads:

VOMIT BAG

INTENSE NATURE OF
THE FOLLOWING FILMS,
YOUR STOMACH
DISTRESS MAY OCCUR.

SHOCKING!
FRIGHTENING!
GRUESOME!

WARNING!

UM Air

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Matthias Koch
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
It sounds like this airline was named by an administrative-type who heard an executive hesitate on the phone when s/he said "Um" before saying Air. Very large, very white bag with no closing mechanism and no bottom to stand on.

Uni Air

Received From: Sean Chou
Print or Image Color: Nice Green and Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
English on one side, Chinese on the other. The Chinese probably consider Americans (and other English speakers) morons because instructions are given in English, but not in Chinese.

Uni Air

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Thomas Köhler
Print or Image Color: Green and Orange
Background / Bag Color: White, Green, Orange
New look bag with alternating green and orange dot fields plus a bonus U-turn symbol.

Uni Air

Approximate Vintage: 2013
Received From: Xusheng Chen
Print or Image Color: Black, White
Background / Bag Color: Green, Yellow
Looks just like the Eva Air bags, but of course it's a Uni Air bag. The bag exhorts you to "Please treasure resource and use sparingly"

United

Approximate Vintage: 1982
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
WITHOUT Kard-O-Pak. This was my first bag

United

Approximate Vintage: 1983
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
WITH Kard-O-Pak. The bottom only says Patented. Subsequent version mention the patent number.

United

Approximate Vintage: 1984
Received From: Robert Masumura
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
The instructions are identical to the 1982 and 1983 bags, but for some reason, the instructions now take up 4 lines instead of 5. Has Kard-O-Pak bottom which displays the patent number unlike earlier version which only say Patented.

United

Approximate Vintage: 1991
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gray
Plain, plain, plain.

United

Approximate Vintage: 1993
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gray
Same old bag, however, this bag says it's made out of recycled paper.

United

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Gray
Still the same, however they changed the closing mechanism and inexplicably removed the instructions for use. Happily, however, the United bag says it's made of recycled paper.

United

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
It's a generic as far as I can tell. Plain, white, and boring as hell.

United

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Navy
It's a very darkly colored generic as far as I can tell, even though my scanner somehow lightened it with some auto-balancing that I couldn't turn off.

United

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: David Shomper
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Navy
It's a very darkly colored generic almost the same as the 2004 version, except that it has a serrated top instead of straight.

United

Approximate Vintage: 1988
Received From: Kim Decker
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Dark Blue
As far as I can tell, this is the "missing link" bag between the lighter blue United bags of the early 80s and the gray United bags of the 90s. I've never seen another printed on such a dark blue.

United Airways

Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Black, Red
Background / Bag Color: White, Purple
The first thing you notice about this Indian carrier's bag is the 7 handed logo of various palm colors. For some reason, the only hand that has a thumb is the green hand. Nobody would (or should) ever confuse this airline with United Airlines.

Although it doesn't mention the company motto on the bag, it's "Fly your own airline", which seems like it could be a safety risk.
