Do you belong to the aircraft passengers,
who take the mouth rather fully? Those gladly a souvenir from the
airplane to go along leave? Some Faible for modern art have? If the
answer reads "", you should fly in the next months with the British
airline Virgin Atlantic. And right after entering the bag in their
front seat pluendern (if you are unobserved: also your seat neighbor),
in order to secure itself one of the most interesting implements to
have those at present in international aviation are - a spitting
Whereby the speech is not here from a boring
paper bag with airline Logo. No, Virgin Atlantic brought, as
world-wide the first airline, a limited edition out of artful
printed on spitting bags - art to the Kotzen as it were. 20
versions, everyone of another designer arranged, are in the next six
months on all flights of the airline on board.
After successful booty course you should
keep yourselves away for the remainder of the flight from
turbulences, in order not to have to supply the spitting bag to
their actual purpose, because that would reduce the collecting tank
value with a gush. The fact that the culture bags will ascend
already soon to looked for valuable articles is considered as safe.
In the on-line auction house eBay were already paid over 200 euro
for individual Brechbeutel from common series production.
The collecting tank municipality re-clamps
the entire globe and is represented also in the InterNet - to find
under search words like "Speisackerl" or "air disease bag". Also
foreign variants like "Pohoinvointipussi" (Finnish) or "Egészséguegyi
Tasak" (Hungarian) are represented.
One of the most interesting Web addresses is

which are provided with affectionate accompanying texts again. Thus
the spitting bag is praised of Dan air as particularly user

imprinted compass is interpreted as warning at flight beginners,
"not against the flight direction to excavator buckets".

www.bagophily.com one dedicates oneself to rather practical
questions. One experiences that the Indonesian Riau airlines has the
smallest flying bag on board (11 x 16.8 x of 7.9 centimeters), which
seizes straight times 1.2 litres, while the international standard
is at 12,4 x 24 x of 8 centimeters and/or scarcely 2.4 litres. Keeps
the size record national the American airlines (25 x of 38.5
centimeters), whereby the question is not answered whether the above
average bag volume permits conclusions on a flight style
particularly below average of the pilots.
The most extensive ejection to the topic is
to find under
www.vomitorium.co.uk. Here no bag question remains unanswered.
Like that the most important manufacturers are listed and all
Hollywood works, in which spitting bags play a role, for example
"Independence Day". A whole chapter is occupied with folding
guidances. That seems to be necessary, because the imprinted
operating instructions do not follow standards. Thus air recommends
new Zealand to fold the used bag away from itself while Icelandair
guesses/advises to fold the filled container in body direction.
British Airways does not give a decided folding direction
recommendation, suggests however folding the bag once while Japan
airlines suggests a double folding.
Also the question, which one does with the
bag after the filling up procedure, is answered. With Somali
airlines are instructed kuebelnde passengers by bag print to place
the spitting bag on the cabin floor. With Pakistan international is
recommended to push it under the seat with British Airways and air
new Zealand may one it to the hostess into the hand press.
And at Lufthansa? On a speituete of the
first generation it meant still: "throw after use not from the
airplane, but close and on the soil place." German perfection, which
inspires. Advocate finds the Lufthansa bag also because of their
successful Design. It has something "from a gediegenen eyeglass

With as much zuspruch it does not surprise
that in the meantime even a technical book on the market is. "Izmiruebel,

publishing house). It impresses on 48 sides with illustrations of
exotic bags (about of interflight bags handmarked by the pilot) and
with special customer (for instance in the chapter concerning bag
closing systems). And it uncovers bad states, by revealing that
neither Federal Institution for material testing nor donation ever
operated goods test seriously bag customer.
In the conclusion chapter weights the
author, who dedicated its book to August von Kotzebue that before
the start of an airplane only life jacket and oxygen masks are
ritually explained. The flight companions would have to demonstrate
also the correct use of the bag, demand it: "that would be service!
With some suitable words (for example and released us from the
evil ) one could show goodwill."
The service thought is high-held calculated
against it at the Low Cost societies. Like that - despite the saving
potential - still no cases are well-known, in which passengers were
requested to bring along own Brechbeutel. The German cheap flier

equal from the belly and his bags accordingly printed on: "stands
