In the Winter 1994-95 timetable of SAS a number of flights within Sweden show 737-300 as the equipment...also included is a seat chart showing 142 seats in an all-economy class configuration.

Since I cannot find 737-300s serving with SAS in the historic fleet/production lists I use (Linjeflyg's -300s were gone before their merger into SAS)...were the 737-300s in service with SAS Winter '94-95 leased in and, if so, how many and from whom? How long did 737-300s serve with SAS overall? ...and since a photo search for the subject turned up 0 results...were any painted in the full livery of SAS?

I never ever saw a B 737-300 in SAS colours. Maybe a sub-charter or something like this.

Falcon Aviation operated for SAS during daylight with 733 combis between night time freighting duties if memory serves

That's probably it, IIRC Falcon Air used to be owned by the Swedish postal service, and thus flew mail at night. I believe the postal service sold the company in 2003 or 2004, and then leased the planes back for the postal routes, and in 2006 Falcon went under. Not sure of the details, but at the time there was a lot of noise from the CEO about how Falcon got screwed by the postal service concerning the leasing deal, and that his business partner had "stolen" half of the ticket income. Around that time, the chief pilot also told the media that Falcon Air planes had been used by traffickers in order to smuggle people from Syria and Iraq to Sweden.

This is all from memory, I'm sure there's more to it, but in all events, it was a huge mess.

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.
