Monarch Airlines (narrow paper)

The gusset says this is a SkyBaG-3 from Portsmouth.

Monarch Airlines (paper)

None of the detailed instructions from Monarch's plastic bags below. Puking into paper is so much safer than hurling into HDPE.

Monarch's logo looks like an amorous couple holding hands across the person in the centre seat.

Monarch (plain white)

Go into the loo on a Monarch flight, and this is what you find.

Monarch Airlines (1998)

Very roomy bag from this charter company: 30.2 x 20.6 mm; when I got it, it was the biggest in this collection. (Well, actually, the Robidog and Hongkong & Yaumati Ferry bags are bigger, but they didn't come from an airline.) The text cautions the user to "Please supervise children when using this bag". It is not clear whether this is intended to avoid spillage or suffocation. The triangular symbol informs would-be recyclers that the bag is made of HDPE plastic.

Thanks to Geoffrey Mundy. (1998)

Monarch Airlines (1999)

Same look as the 1998 bag above, but it has a different feel. This bag is made of a rougher plastic: as if it had been put on a gravel road and a steamroller had run over it. Unique "crater-look", almost transparent where the plastic is thinnest. Hold it against the light, and the craters look like the stars in the sky at night.

You're still supposed to supervise children when using the bag. Might be difficult if there aren't any near where you're sitting.

Thanks to Ted Griffiths. (1999)


Monarch Airlines (2000)

How is this bag different from the ones above? Same look as in 1999, but same feel as 1998.

Monarch Airlines (pleated base)

Not only optically different from all the other myriad Monarchs on this page, but features a pleated base too for extra leak security.

Monarch Airlines (double bag)

Unusual approach: a bag just like the 1998 one above (but with a slightly longer black stripe at the top left (bottom left in this picture). But this bag is inside a clear polystyrene bag -- a freezer bag? Insurance against a burst inner bag, or a friendly gesture from Monarch to enable passengers to freeze their meal for later consumption?

Thanks to Geoffrey Mundy. (2000) 


Monarch Airlines (plain white)

Alas, Monarch have given up printing anything on their bags. I suppose this bag, made from industrial-strength rough plastic, is somehow safer for children than previous Monarch offerings. Otherwise why would they have deleted the all-important warning to unwary passengers?

Thanks to Sheila and Geoffrey Mundy (2007)
