Rune's Barf Bag Collection - Generic Airline Bags

My criteria for a generic bag are as follows:
  1. The bag misses all identification that can be connected to a specific airline
  2. The bag is used by more than one airline
If both criteria 1 and 2 is met, I consider the bag as a generic bag.

This generic puke bag takes the joy out of flying! Why can't a big airline (Iberia, Eurowings, VLM and Tyrolian Airways) afford to let their passengers have decent bags with the company logo on it? It is a shame!  Thanks to Erik Domajnko, Ole Konarsky and Sören Skov Olsen. A great thanks goes also to Dr Walter Brinker who on the German TV show "Wat is" on may 17, 1999, ripped this bag to pieces! Nice work, thank you!

This generic bag with blue vertical strips and wordings "Clean bag" and "Water proofed" is from China Southern Airlines. Doesn't China Southern produce its own barf bag? Yes, it did previously but not anymore! I think the reason is because they just took over some small airlines in China like the Xinjiang Airlines. In order to standardize the barf bags between different companies, it started to produce bags carrying no name. Shame on them but thanks to Wilson Lui.
