Garuda (red)

The former look of the Indonesian carrier. This bag was made by ACS, whose logo in the gusset says "Air Catering Service".

Thanks to Roger Macrae. (2004)


Garuda (green)

A tiny bag (18.7 x 11 cm) from the Indonesian flag-carrier. There's a nasty-looking wire fastener sticking out of this one, so be careful: you don't want to poke your eye while you hurl. In litigous America, Garuda would be liable for millions of dollars in injury damages. (1999)


Garuda (sealed)

Garuda has given in to the Asian trend, and now seals the top of its bags with a perforated strip to ensure you get a clean one. "Tear of here" (note the misspelling in "off"), it says. You then have to fold it along four dotted lines (if you speak both Indonesian and English), reducing the capacity of an already tiny bag. Perhaps that's the reason there were two bags in the seat pocket in front of me? (2000)


Garuda (no seal)

Garuda's printers are more innovative that their bag manufacturers. This bag has the "Tear of here" instruction, but there's nothing to tear off: no seal, no perforated strip. If you do choose to follow the instructions, be sure to tear carefully: you risk reducing your bag's already tiny capacity (18.9 x 10.9 cm) below its effectiveness threshold for serious barfing. (2000) 


Garuda (dashes)

Subtle, subtle: this bag is like the one above, but it is actually sealed at the top, and has a row or perforations to help you rip it open. The dotted lines are dashes rather than dots, making it different from the sealed bag above. (2001)


Garuda (open top)

Two distinguishing features about this bag: the sloppy construction (the seam threatens to come apart with a minimal load of barf), and the fact that it is not sealed at the top, despite the "tear of here" and perforations.

Garuda (long)

Same design as the other Garuda bags, but this one is long and has a pointy base.
