Sobelair

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Burckhard Rodens
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Sneaky Sobelair appropriates the Sabena logo, blows it up to immense proportions, and uses it for its own. This is the Navy blue version for bolder, daring flights.

SOL Linhas Aereas

Received From: Janusz Tichoniuk
Print or Image Color: Red, Yellow, Blue, White
Background / Bag Color: Navy
They took the Microsoft Windows Logo, streamlined it into curvy artistic glyphs and came up with their own logo. In fact, if Cupcake Wars ever does a spread for SOL, the cupcake topping shapes would be easy to copy from the logo.

Solaseed Air

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Received From: Toshiaki Anan
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Green
Not only do I wonder why anyone would call an airline Solaseed, I have no clue what "Seed Smiles in the Sky" means. They might as well have called it "Engrish Air"

Solomons

Received From: Mike Roselle
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Bold and simple, the Solomons bag makes a statement. I have no idea what that statement might be though.

Somali Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 1985
Received From: Reid Trummel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag says, "XIDH MARKAAD ISTICMAASHO DABADEEDNA SAGXADA HOOSE ISKA DHIG", which looks more like an excellent crypotgram than instructions. What language is that?

According to Reid, "Somali Airlines was a pretty rare ride even when they were still in business, but now that they are defunct this must be a quite rare bag."

Song Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
At the time of this writing, Song bags are difficult to find. I don't why, since they're crappy Delta clones, but such is life!

Soul Plane Nashawn Wade Airlines (NWA)

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Purple
This bag was a prop used by Snoop Dog in the movie Soul Plane with Kevin Hart. It comes with a certificate of authenticity (shown). It actually looks like a pretty standard barf bag althbough the flight attendant is fairly curvy. It even has French, German and Spanish on it.

Purchased on eBay for $8.50

South African Airways

Received From: Paul Diamond
Print or Image Color: Gold
Background / Bag Color: White
Big bag with pterydactyl logo, probably modeled after the Joust video game.

South African Airways

Received From: Roger MacRae
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Blue
Big bag with pterydactyl logo and interference lines.

South African Airways

Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Blue and Orange
Background / Bag Color: White
Auburn University colored bag misses golden opportunity to display a picture in a picture in a picture out to infinity as an SAA bag is pictured right on the bag. This is the only bag I'm aware of that has instructions in Hebrew, save for the Israeli airline El Al.

South African Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: David Harris
Print or Image Color: Blue and White
Background / Bag Color: Tan and White
Has six pictographic instructions. But I don't get it. Are there people who think "Cans etc." somehow excludes solid litter and cups? And what moron thinks that "No liquids" isn't covered by "Solid litter only"?

South African Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2000
Received From: Roger MacRae
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Has six pictographic instructions. The "Leave Bag on Seat" admonition is pretty cool because the bag pictured on the seat is an SAA bag

South African Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Eric Von Amerom
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White
Still has six pictographic instructions, but now there are 3 wacky lines emanating from a single point, mindlessly going nowhere. Plus I think they list their hubs now: CPT (Cape Town), LHR (London), FRA (France), HKG (Hong Kong), BAG (Baghdad?).

South African Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: JK Terry
Print or Image Color: Navy, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
South African decides to decorate its bag with plankton or sea anemone or something in two different colors. It's pretty cool, but not bizarre at the same time.

South African Airways

Approximate Vintage: 1970
Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Awesome font, awesome flying goat and even some Afrikaanse. The bag says, "SOUTH AFRICAN AIRWAYS SUID AFRIKAANSE LUGDIENS"

South African Airways

Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
Big bag with pterydactyl logo, probably modeled after the Joust video game. This is identical to the other pterydactyl bag except this one is printed blue.

Southern Winds

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: Ken Costilow
Print or Image Color: Crisp Navy
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
They did a really lousy job of cropping it, as it sits very crooked. Andrei Bezdedeanu is a secondary contributor.

Southwest Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 1999
Received From: Christian Annyas
Print or Image Color: Black, Red, Gold
Background / Bag Color: White
What an incredible bag! Southwest, known among collectors as the purveyor of ubiquitous blank white bags decided upon an Air Sickness Bag as a vehicle for luring potential employees. One side says, "Sick of your job?". The other side has the pitch: "If you'd prefer a career that's fun and challenging, join the crew reported in Fortune® magazine as one of America's Most Admired Companies."

Southwest Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2007
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Oh, the most generic of bags. All it has is a patent number on the bottom: 7,041,042

Southwest Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2014
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
Same generic-looking bag as ever, except they added the instructions: "FOLD DOWN TWICE AND SECURE WITH TWIST TIE" to the bag.

The bottom of the bag says "U.S. Patent No. 7,041,042 and features LK Plastics.
