That should read Braniff Braniff Braniff Braniff Braniff Braniff Braniff Braniff. The name is repeated eight times, in case you didn't get it the first time. Like Balkan, it features a plastic bag inside. 

This bag actually usually comes with wire tabs to clamp it shut, but this one is a damaged specimen. A notice on the base claims this bag is both waterproof and airtight. Airtight? Only if you use the wire clamp.

Braniff (brown)

No such inflated airtightness claims on this brown version.

Braniff (pink)

Put on your sunglasses: this bag is a luminescent pink. Easy to find in the dark if you feel ill during the in-flight movie.

On the reverse it has some friendly suggestions: "This litter bag is rarely used for its original purpose - so we thought we'd put it to some utilitarian use. Care for a game of cards? Your Braniff hostess has a deck she'll let you use. And here's a score card, ready made for gin rummy."

How thoughtful. I wonder if the hostess will teach you how to play if you don't know the rules?

Braniff (believe it!)

"BELIEVE IT!" yells this bag. It's unclear which of the two statements on the bag the passenger is expected to lend credence to: "The Best Low Fare in the Air", or could it be "For Motion Discomfort"?

Bag kindly supplied by Winpak. (2001)


Braniff (red)

The Braniff logotype looks as if someone has chopped the top off with a craft knife.

Apologies for the unpleasant brown stain on the reverse of this veteran item. I considered airbrushing it out of the image, but realized that would infringe against the oath of integrity that all bagsite managers have to take.

Thanks to Thorsten Hecht (2005)



This Brazilian carrier leaves the design to your imagination.
