It can be hard to identify some bags.

Some airlines assume you know their logo, so don't feel a name is necessary.

Some use generic bags. There's text, little diagrams, even a nice design -- but no airline name, and no logo.

Chinese airlines sometimes have the name in Chinese only... not much help to those of us who can't read it.

The worst airlines insult long-suffering passengers with plain white bags.

Sorry, that's not quite true. The very worst airlines provide no bags at all. Bring your own, or puke on the floor.

Got a bag you can't identify? Check it against this handy identity parade! It doesn't have all the bags in the collection -- just the ones that are hard to name.

To get a description of the bag, click on the airline name in the menu to the left.
