Qantas big bag doubles as photo bag. Only a small line of text on front top reveals what kind of bag this is "Please use this bag if you are affected by motion sickness". Qantas logo on low left on back of bag. Thanks to Sören Skov Olsen

Same as above? No sir! This Qantas bag is different in many ways. The top line is now "Motion Sickness/Rubbish Disposal" and on the left side "Please take this bag with you and pass on to family or friends if you are unable to use". Well, this mysterious passenger was obviously "unable to use" because he/she passed it on to me! Thanks to anonymous donator.

Wow! A non photo bag from Qantas! Only Qantas logo in low left corner and instructions in no less than 11 languages! Is this world record? Thanks to Alan Howlett.

Wow! Another non-photo bag from Qantas. This time they even removed the instructions. Probably their passengers are already educated how to use the bag or the stewardess is demonstrating in the aisle before takeoff. And no need for photo bags any longer, people are using digital cameras these days. Thanks to Wilson Lui.
