Mesaba Airlines

Boring, boring, boring. 

I hope that that's enough to embarrass Mesaba execs into supplying a decently branded bag.

Mexicana (plastic)

So much to say about this long, thin plastic bag. Like Continental, it doubles as a "seat occupied" (o, si tu prefieres, "asiento ocupado") sign. The same puzzling "prohibited" sign, too. Unlike Continental, though, Mexicana's printing is upside down... just like British Airways.

Helpful little diagrams at the top show you how to tear off the sticky strip to seal the bag. Memorise them first, though, because if you follow them you'll end up covering the diagrams up. A recycling diagram says the bag is made of PAD plastic (whatever that is). Oh, and why is the Spanish printing smaller than the English?

Just to remind you: it is the policy of this webpage to scan all bags, rotate them 90 to the left (so the bag opening is on the left side) and reduce the image width to 175 pixels. Don't like it? Then do your own webpage.

Mexicana (flimsy)

Retypeset, and in flimsier plastic too.

Mexicana (paper)

More colourful paper version of the bag above, without the helpful little diagrams, though.


Mexicana (red)

Nice to see that the Mexican flag carrier is tearing itself away from gringo influence. This bag has an unusual closure mechanism: a slit in the top shaped like an upside-down U. I haven't worked out how this is supposed to keep the contents inside. Perhaps it's just a handle so you can pass the bag to the cabin crew (or your seat neighbour) more easily.

There are perforations along the top edge of the bag. It seems to have come from a tear-off roll.
