LADE

Stands for Lineas Aereas del Estado (I've probably missed some accents off the e's). Fransua Dubua, who sent me this gem, says that this carrier is owned and operated by the Argentinian Airforce, does charter flights and serves isolated towns in Patagonia. Its logo looks like an eagle carrying a bowling ball. Fransua says the logo hasn't been changed since the airline was founded in 1947, but it appears only on its offices and barfbags -- not on the planes themselves. This plastic bag dates from 1994. The pilots and attendants are airforce personnel, and the service is great, he says. (See all the fascinating things you can learn by collecting barfbags?)

Thanks, Fransua. (2001)

Unimaginative bag from this carrier: All-capitals instructions in Helvetica (or is it Arial?) typeface. Not even a logo: unless you count the bag-maker's star logo concealed inside the gusset.

Thanks to Steffen Heinrich. (2000)

Laker Airways

From package-tourist-king Freddie Laker's empire. A unique bagmaker concealed in the gusset: "SkyBag-3, Tel. Portsmouth (U.K.) 818444, Telex 86646".

Thanks to Roger Macrae. (2001)

Laker Airways (empty gusset)

Nothing hidden in this one's gusset. Freddie must have thrown it overboard. 

Thanks to Kevin Middleton. (2004)
