Ugly/weird Travel Bags

Sun May 02, 2004 11:44 pm

What is the ugliest/weirdest travel bag you have ever seen while flying? Mine was a few months ago when I flew from DFW to MCO. A deadheading TransMerdian pilot who had a face like "Mini-Me" was exiting the plane ahead of me when I noticed that his flight bag was covered with "Mini-Me" stickers.

Definitely a weird looking bag for a pilot to carry!

Once saw a man who had stickers of every place he'd been. Must have been over 50 or 60 stickers on his suitcase. That was one proud guy! Not exactly weird, but somewhat strange. Made for something to look at during check-in!

we still get those square plastic laundry bags here at LGA. other than that, not many wierd ones. the occasional military duffel comes to mind, but that is in no way strange. usually, they're just rollaboards. for the most part, pilots use the black travelpro or samsonite ones.

I used to have a duffel bag which was the perfect size. It was at the upper limit to carry-on (although I usually checked it) and it held enough stuff for about 10 days. The problem was that I used it so much that it got many tears in it, so being the poor college student that I am, I repaired it with the "Handyman's Helper." In other words, the duffel bag went from a nice blue canvas bag to a shiny silver duct tape bag. That bag received many odd looks, but I liked it.
