SAS

Approximate Vintage: 1970
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue, Black
Background / Bag Color: Blue, White
Awesome old bag with a mosquito atop the SAS logo, complete with a halftoned field of nothing below. The bag has a pointy bottom with writing that wraps around front to back saying "This bag is manufactured of Billerud's MG Bleached Polythene-Coated Kraft Paper. Converter: AB Herman Stenberg Stockholm Sweden"

"Billerud's MG Bleached Polythene-Coated Kraft Paper" bears repeating because it's so ridiculous.

SAS

Approximate Vintage: 2015

Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Blue
SAS keeps tinkering with the bags making them look more modern but still the same.

SATA

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Walter Shumacher
Print or Image Color: Light Gray
Background / Bag Color: White
A flimsy bag whose ancestor, Air Acores, no longer appears on the bag. Probably a move by some large ego CEO that wanted to eliminate all references to the company he displaced, and figure the barf bag was just the place to do it.

Satellite Gore

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
I can't quite figure out what this bag is all about. It was sent to me anonymously, so I don't know how to find out more information about it. The note that came with the bag says that the bags were distributed to the first 100 people at an art show in Manhattan. The exhibit was R. Land at Maxfish.

I don't know if it's a real movie or not. It may just be the artwork for a fictional movie. Who can tell? The bag came filled with rubber vomit, a very nice touch. I find the bag to be one of the more interesting artifacts in this museum.

Also, be sure to check out the bottom of the bag. They spared no expense in making this artistic.

Satellite Gore

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Les Houpt
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to the other English Satellite Gore bag except there's nothing on the bottom.

Satellite Gore

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Shonali Bhowmik
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
This is the Spanish version of Satellite Gore. It's a stunning departure from the industry standard of placing several languages on a single bag.

Satena

Received From: Daniel Schuler
Print or Image Color: Blue, Red, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: White
A really nice bag that I can't quite get a vintage on. Nice heron-like bird flying over the setting (or rising) sun.

Saudi Arabian Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Lou Mazel
Print or Image Color: Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
Ahh yes, the swords under the palm tree. Reminiscent of the big X (instead of W) in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"

Saudi Arabian Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: Green, Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
A Darwinian missing link between the 2000 bag and the 2005 bag that shown an intermediate evolutionary state.

Saudi Arabian Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Ted Noon
Print or Image Color: Green, Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: White and Blue
Much like the previous version, but added non-sensical green lines and extra obfuscation.

Ahh yes, the swords under the palm tree. Reminiscent of the big X (instead of W) in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"

Saudi Arabian Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Received From: Kimberly Lorin
Print or Image Color: Tan
Background / Bag Color: White, Tan
Saudi Arabian goes subtle with understated light colors and swishes. They've gone to logo only, supplanting their airline name from the bag.

Saudia

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Oliver Conradi
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Says "SDS Germany" inside side fold. Fold NOT scanned in, sorry.

Says "Saoudi Blantex" inside side fold. Fold NOT scanned in, sorry.

Says "Update Hong Kong" inside side fold. Fold NOT scanned in, sorry.

SCAL (Sichuan Airlines)

Received From: Bob Turner
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Weird time-warp logo that seems to indicate you should expect turbulent flow of the air stream when you fly. Adding letters strategically to the bag would render the airline's name as SCALE, SCALD, SCALY, or MESCALINE.

SCAL (Sichuan Airlines)

Approximate Vintage: 1996
Received From: Kim Decker
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
A bag Brian Scalabrine would love. While the printing is identical to the other SCAL bag, it's printed much darker in Navy, not just blue.

Scanair

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Orange and Navy
Background / Bag Color: White and Navy
Scanair -- the airline for teetotalers. Whatever you do, don't drink on this flight! This long defunct Swedish carrier became Premiair, as you can verify by the ubiquitous big orange dot that got carried over to the new airline's bag. As an aside, you have to love Swedish, a language where a word can have the letters FTSJ appear sequentially.

Scandinavian Seaways

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Christian Funch
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
An unbelievably beautiful and detailed bag. You actually get the feeling you're on a cruise by looking at the bag. Scandinavians have cornered the market on beautiful design. The attention to detail in the ship's reflection shows how much loving care went into the bag, not to mention how they coddle the passenger by telling them that even the toughest sailors get sick.

Scandinavian Seaways

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Gerhard Lang
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
Identical to the other Scandinavian Seaways bag except they farmed this one out to some company other than Duni, since the Duni quality symbol is missing.

Scary Movie 2

Approximate Vintage: 2001
Received From: Kathleen Sabatini
Print or Image Color: Red and Black
Background / Bag Color: White
According to Kathleen, this bag is "...from the hit comedy, SCARY MOVIE 2, starring Shawn Waynas, Marlon Wayans, Anna Faris, Chris Elliot, Tim Curry, Tori Spelling and directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans. This official promo bag was available only in the UK." I'm not quite sure terms and conditions are on site, but it's kind of cool to tout an on-line tabloid right on the bag.
