I don't collect them but I do have a Flying Colours one, (Ironically with no colours the flags are white), my sister got it for me when she was flying back from FAO on an Onur Air A321 (I was on the flight back a week later - she flew on her own to sit her primary school exams) My guess is that since FCL had borrowed the aircraft as a stand in they had switched all of the magazines and bags to their own (Still Onur Air Saftey cards - no I did not get one). She visited the flightdeck and the captain signed it, the same crew I met the following week too.
I think you can just take a sick bag but like I said I don't collect them.
How many do you have?

Whenever my friend Nick goes on a trip someplace he steals the airsick bags and the flight safety card from his seat and gives them to me. Its become a bit of a joke, I think its his way of saying, "You're way too into this whole aviation thing!". Oh well, we get a good laugh out of it. I have several barf bags from DL, a fair few from NW, and one or two from CO, mostly from him. Thanks for the souvenirs, Nick!

I have loads (30 or 40), some of them from back in the 70's - they are just in a box somewhere, if anybody wants them, give me a yell. I've kept on collecting them all this time, I have no idea what for though. First person to shout out can have them all !

I have about 1700 bags and over 700 different kinds.
The best way to get bags is to contact airlines. It's always fun to get replies from them. Some that I got were really original. The best was from JAT Yugoslav. The representative in Belgrade wrote that due to the war in their country they won't be able to send me any bags eBay is always good to check. I once sold a bag there for $28! Try also to contact other collectors.
Unfortunately, when I started my army service my collection was kind of put on hold. I'm trying to revive it these days.
