>>>New ones or used ones...and do you dryclean and iron the used ones?
I´ve been collecting for 13 years now - and this is always the first question people ask - most of the time trying hard to hide that smug grin
>>>What are the most beautiful ones? Are these regular bags or are there limited editions?
Hmm, beautifull. I mean, there are completely different approaches: designs which follow a no-nonsense approach, offer no frills and perfectly blend in with the cabin layout - LH being a prime example - are very nice.
On the other hand are the bags Air India used in the 70s - aesthetically very pleasing, but a tad psychedelic - if I were on the verge of puking, this design would completely do me in:
Crossair - envelope to mail undevelopped film rolls
Continental - doggy bag "Once you have had a chance to roam, don´t forget those left back home"
TWA - gin rummy scoreboard
Delta et al - "Seat Occupied" sign
Maersk - X/O playing field
some British charter - container for biohazardous waste
Special editions? Lufthansa´s used to have a "best before" date - typically German, I guess...

I once was on a cruise-ship and they have put these sickness-bags into each cabin. When we were drunk in the bar, we had an idea for a nice joke: we went to a store the next port and bought baby-food.
When we were on the vessel again and we had horrible weather, we've put this food into one of the sickness-bags. We went along the ship and when people arrived, we took some spoons, put them into the bag, ate some baby-food and said: "Eih, some people are so stupid to throw this bag away."
As you can imagine, the other people weren't very amused
