London City Airways

Amusing design showing the parts of your attire that you can keep clean by using this bag.

I wonder if there's a female equivalent of this bag?

Like Swissair, the Polish airline has clouds on its bag, but it goes for some cheap graphics rather than the more expensive colour picture.

LOT (flat base)

Black-and-white, but at least this one has a flat base, so you can stand it up rather than having to ask your seat neighbour to hold it.

The brown thing is a piece of double-sided tape. Peel off the backing and fold to hold the bag closed. Don't do this if your neighbour wants to use the bag after you.

LOT (gusseted base)

Big bag (sadly damaged), with a peel-off sticky strip. Looks pretty flimsy: I'd imagine this gave rise to quite a few spills.

Most unusual thing about this bag is the gusseted base: a unique fold that prevents it from getting caught in the seat pocket.

LOT (blue sticky pad)

Now with a square blue sticky pad, and printed on shiny paper.

LOT (blue sticky pad, matte paper)

Now on slightly lower quality paper. Are the Poles trying to conform to some new EU directive?

LOT (green sticky pad)

Colour-coded sticky pads?

LOT (white sticky pad)

Back to a standard square base. Now with a circular white sticky foam pad to help keep the bag closed and contents inside.

LOT (brown pad)

I've just realized why LOT provides sticky pads on their bags.

It's because their bags come ready to display. Peel off the backing paper, and you can hang the bag on the wall.

LOT (under wing)

"You're under our wing", it says. Hmm... I'd prefer to be in the cabin, preferably in first class. I thought that engineers and refuelling staff were the ones who were to be found under aircraft wings?
