Jetair Belgium

Looks just like the TUI one-eyed smiley bag.

Jet Airways (purple)

An example of the instructions not always catching up with advanced bag design (or is the other way round?). The text on this Indian airline's bag tells you to "Kindly fold here and turn tabs to secure". But what tabs? There aren't any.

Jet airways (blue)

Doesn't show up here, but this bag is dark blue, not purple -- though it was collected from the same flight as the bag above. It's also slightly larger (25 cm long, vs 23.3 cm), and is made of sturdier paper. Jet still hasn't added tabs, though.

Thanks to B.M.D. Kambewa and Marina Martin (1999)


Jet Airways (logo)

The Indian airline can now afford to put a logo on its bags. It looks like a speeding Pacman. Still no tabs to turn, though.

Jet Airways (larger instructions)

Passengers couldn't read the fine print on the bag above, so Jet's bag design team have upped the point size. (2004)


Jet Airways (seam in right gusset)

Same design as the bags above, but the seam is now in the right gusset rather than the left.

Thanks to Evelyn Mathias (2005)


Jet Airways (two tabs)

Ever striving to gain an edge in the highly competitive market of Indian aviation, those innovative folks at Jet Aviation have decided to give you not one, but two wire tabs to keep your bag safely closed in case you have to use it in turbulence over the Aravalli Hills.

Not only that: one of the tabs is on the outside of the bag, while the other is glued to the inside - a world first.

Thanks to Christiane Herweg (2007)
