Black, leather bag, almost square. The back extends over the top and down the front to create a flap. This flap can be closed by a metal clasp that can be locked. The clasp has 3 settings. Written on the flap in gold is "T.E.A.L. / FLIGHT STEWARD". There is a large compartment on the front that closes with a metal zipper. There is a black, plastic handle attached to the top. On the back is the remains of a blue and yellow sticker. That says "BOAC" with a plane across it. Underneath is "..RLD LEADER IN JET TRAVEL". There are 2 folds along the sides and base allowing the bag to be collapsed and expanded. There are 6 decorative loops attached to the bag (4 on the front and 2 on the back). Inside, there are 2 compartments of equal size that correspond to the folds.
