Alitalia

This bag exhorts passengers to close it either by folding (in English and French), or by rolling it (in German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese). If there were majority voting, the rollers would win.

Thanks to Jürgen Klein. (1999, though presumably this bag is older)

Alitalia (darker brown)

Retypeset too.

Thanks to Wolfgang Franken. (2002)

Alitalia (2)

Compared to similar Alitalia bags, the text at the bottom of this bag is printed at a slightly different distance from the broad brown stripe.

Thanks to Christian and Gerhard Lang. (2004)

alitalia04

Alitalia (instructions on base)

"Chiudere arrotolando · close by folding · fermer en pliant · durch zusammenrollen schliessen · cierrese enrollando · fechar enrolando". Repeated three times.

Thanks to Wolfgang Franken. (2002)

Alitalia (orange/brown)

Glorious in its autumn shades, this is perhaps the oldest bag in my Alitalia stable.

An unusual alliance on the base between English and French (which exhort users to fold the bag) against the Germans, Italians, Spanish and Portuguese (which all want it rolled after use).

Thanks to Wolfgang Franken (2005)
