We had to wait several months after Swissair went belly-up before its successor, Swiss, came out with a new bag. Well, here it is. With a paltry design like this, I wonder how they are going to attract any passengers.

Swiss (double square)

No longer an "Air sickness bag" (in English, German, French and Italian), but now "Waste" (in the same languages), plus "Rument", which I guess is Romansch.

Swiss (lots of crosses)

No less than 3600 of them. Plus two bigger ones in the red squares near the bottom.

Swiss (lower waste)

I always pick up a couple of bags on board, even though I'm pretty sure I've already got that particular item. Then comes the unremitting tedium of comparing my newly harvested bags with each other and those already in my collection in the usually vain hope of detecting a minor difference.

This bag shows the value of this apparently thankless series of tasks: the black fine print (Waste, Abfall, etc.) is printed lower down the bag than on the previous edition. To clinch it, from the same aircraft I also harvested several examples of the previous edition with the black printing higher on the bag.

Swiss (photo bag)

Swiss are trying to cover the costs of their bags by getting Belcolor Farbfoto to sponsor them.

Swiss (B01601)

A revised photobag layout. The code number is above the barcode on the reverse.
