Philippine Airlines (ethnic)

A unique innovation: the wire wings are joined to the bag by a trapezoid piece of paper that stops the wings from catching in the seat pocket. Unfortunately it doesn't look like this clever idea caught on among the bag-design fraternity: no other bag features it.

"Gamit sa sakit himpapawid. Tikluping makalawa ang 'metal' at baluktutin ang dalawang dulo upang mapinid".

So now you know.

Thanks to Jay Labe. (2001)

Philippine Airlines

Filipinos may be the most straight-speaking people of Southeast Asia, but they still can't bring themselves to write "airsickness". Instead, they reach for the euphemism "motion discomfort". Perhaps there's cultural influence from Northwest?

This is an interesting construction, consisting of a flimsy plastic bag inside a stout paper one. A bit like Yangon Airways. (1994)

Philippines Airlines (even lighter)

...And yet lighter: so light, they had to print the text in dark type.

Thanks to Constance McCorkle. (2001)
