PIA

Pakistan International Airlines doesn't want you to forget its corporate acronym: 20 PIAs on the front and back of this bag, plus another nine in the side pleats and six on the base: 35 in all. Not quite as many as Sterling, but PIA does have it in two scripts: Latin (in green) and Arabic (yellow).

Thanks to Steffen Heinrich. (2000)

PIA (old)

The instructions tell you to "dispose under seat and inform flight attendant", who has undoubtedly been given instructions to search the gloom for the bright red wire tie at the top of the bag.

PIA (new)

Similar to the design above, which I thought had been replaced. But this one has the PIA design is slightly bigger type, and the Urdu has broader leading too. This is a tiny bag: 19.7 x 10.5 cm: vying with Garuda for the title of smallest bag in the skies.

Thanks to Christiane Herweg. (2001)

PIA (smaller)

A smaller bag, printed on poorer quality paper.

PIA (no rainbow)

Nothing in the gusset of this one.

The green stripe on the reverse is where the tie has got torn off.

PIA (Rainbow Corporation)

Rainbow Corporation (in the gusset) must be the makers of this bag. Either that, or they own PIA.

Thanks to Yumiko and Steffen Mathias. (2004)

PIA (smaller fine print)

Beats me why PIA have to change their design in such subtle increments. Perhaps they can't afford to buy more than a couple of hundred bags at a time?

Thanks to Ilse Köhler-Rollefson. (2005)

PIA (darker greens)

This one is made by Rainbow Corporation. But I think you'll agree that the colours are different.

Thanks to Christiane Herweg (2007)
