Safiran

Approximate Vintage: 2006
Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
I don't know if Safiran means anything in Farsi, but a more Anglo friendly airline name would be Safe Iran.

Sahara

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: David Birtwell
Print or Image Color: Gold, White, and Black
Background / Bag Color: Blue
It looks like you're supposed to take a coin and rub off the spot on the lower left, hoping you'll expose a $1,000,000 prize, but probably exposing 10% off of your purchase price. Bag features 3 arrows pointing in different directions.

SAHSA

Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This Honduran airline was more popularly known as "Stay at Home, Stay Alive"

Sally Ferries

Received From: Holger Huette
Print or Image Color: Red and White
Background / Bag Color: Black
Looks a little bit like 'Salty Ferries'. I got this in a swap for a CD.

Sam

Received From: Richard David Glueck
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
A much simpler, toned town Sam, as though this bag belongs to some guy named Sam.

Sam

Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Green and Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Although Sam is an odd name for an Airline (like 'Bob' might be), perhaps I've fallen into the bag orientation trap. I assume Side 1, that way it's scanned in, is sideways, but if it's not, this could easily pass for "E Drainpipe Airlines". Sam is oddly reminiscent of UniSAM, discussed in more detail in the waning pages of "Cvltvre Made Stvpid (Culture Made Stupid)" by Tom Weller. Or maybe the logo is a Yin/Yang thing? Or a Safeway logo?

San

Received From: Steve Thompson
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag has been rated R by the MPAA for violence, nudity, and strong adult content. (Actually, the box that resembles the MPAA rating says 'Plasticos Algar Cia. Ltda.')

The main part of this bag makes san look like a mismatched HTML tag. Also, San looks like it was printed with a bad dot matrix printer missing a scan line.

Four placid doves make your flight peaceful until you violently retch in them.

Santacon

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: O Man
Print or Image Color: Red, White, Black
Background / Bag Color: Gray, White
A new movement called Santacon is taking the country by storm. Ordinary people get dressed up as Santa on or around Xmas and parade down the street. Celebrations vary in rowdiness, but it's just a big day of fun. After all, many, many people are disenfranchised during the holiday season, so I'm not surprised at its popularity. Anyway, mischievous New York Santacon attendee, O Man, decided to distribute barf bags for the event. Although this is only a sticker on a Sicksaver bag, it's still pretty cool. The bag says

Santa's Simple Rules
Don't Fuck w/the police
Don't Fuck w/kids
Don't Fuck w/store security
Don't Fuck w/Santa
Sincerely Santa

Beautiful in its simplicity.

SAS

Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue and Black
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
First black dotted bag I'm aware of. Features interesting looking hoof kicking SAS so hard that it tilts.

Extra! Real live librarian, Janet Poff says, "The 'hoof' is actually a very stylized prow of a Viking longship". Librarians rule!!!

Much like the hooved version of this bag, except the hoof is notably absent. Also, ELAG is printed on the bottom.

SAS

Approximate Vintage: 1989
Received From: Craig Richards
Print or Image Color: Blue and White
Still has black dots but SAS is now centered.

SAS

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Christian Funch
Background / Bag Color: Half Blue, Half White
In a bold marketing decision, SAS threw subtlety to the wind and put their name RIGHT ON THE FRONT of the bag.

SAS

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Christian Funch
Background / Bag Color: Half Blue, Half Gray
Very distinguished, with the word "Scandinavian" in the folds.

SAS

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Marty St. George
Background / Bag Color: Half Blue, Half Gray
Very distinguished, with the word "Scandinavian" in the folds. ELAG the manufacturer (which sounds a bit like Vlad the Impaler), got some easy press by printing their name on the bottom.

SAS

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Received From: David Shomper
Background / Bag Color: Orange, Blue, Gray
Scandinavian decides to add an orange tear-strip, which is a nice aesthetic touch.

SAS

This bag says,

Our Multi-Bag
You can use this in-flight, multi-bag in many was: Motion discomfort. Don't worry, it's waterproof. As an amusing glove puppet for 15 seconds. Make sure it's empty first. For food and stuff, you want to take with you.

Whatever clever use you find for it, we hope it helps!

SAS stays with the MultiBag theme -- "A multi purpose bag for you" -- but now they're a member of the Star Alliance.
