$200/bike each way from Philly to Venice back in May. When one of my friends got back he found a split in one of the chainstays of his carbon frame. Upon inspecting his hard case he found a slit in the box, the dimensions of which were eerily similar to those of a fork lift blade. U.S. Air did compensate him for a new frame.
What really pissed me off was that we upgraded to 1st Class for the flight home yet we still got charged the full $200 for each bike even though the second bag, which was normally $100, was free because of our status. IMO, that $100 should have been credited towards the $200 bike charge. In other words, we each lost the $100 perk that came with 1st Class simply because we had a bike rather than "normal" second bags and then had to pay $200 each on top of everything else. That was definitely mean.
