Golden oldies – a selection of SAS cabin bags

At the SAS museum in Norway there is a fantastic selection of Scandinavian Airlines’ objects to admire, including some amazing vintage bags.

The cabin bag has always been a popular accessory for travelers who wanted to show off to the world they had travelled with SAS. The SAS cabin bag has gone through many designs and been made from a variety of materials, but it has always fulfilled its principle task: being practical and sustainable. In the 1960s, SAS cabin bags flitted across the silver screen, with Hollywood movie stars proudly carrying the SAS logo.
