Gorkha Airlines (pink)

A natty Nepalese number in translucent pink plastic. "Fly with us the gallant way", it exhorts. "Gallant" meaning to pretend you're fine when you're really as sick as a yak. But what's this? Holes punched down the side of the bag? "We put it in a ring binder for you until you arrived in Nepal", explained the perpetrator of this crime, Shuva Sharma. I've tried to explain that a bag with holes is useless both for puking into and for collecting. Somehow, I don't think he understands.

Thanks anyway, Shuva. (2000)

Gorkha Airlines (brown)

A somewhat-less-natty number from the same airline. The design looks as if it's been hand-painted onto the plastic -- a novel way to employ people in the Himalayan kingdom. It now says "galiant" rather than "gallant". The winged logo at the bottom features what looks like a plane flying upside down, but which Narayan Bhattarai assures me is a pair of crossed Gorkha khukuri knives.

Thanks, Narayan. (2000)

Not worth flying from Stockholm to Visby if all you get is this boring plain white bag.

Thanks to Josef Gebele. (2002)
