Airline barf bags. The anniversary & the movie

No one wants to get sick on an airplane. But if you feel ill, it’s good to know there’s usually an air sickness bag in the seatback pocket.

And, as there is for most everything, there are people who are serious about collecting (unused) airline barf bags.

This short film includes interviews with some of the world’s air sickness bag collectors. The film also notes that this travel amenity shares its 75th anniversary with Dramamine, a medication designed to combat air sickness that may, some worry, signal the demise of collectible airline barf bag.
