General Discussion / If you fly, how do you transport your bike?
« on: August 03, 2011, 08:16:14 pm »
This must be a common problem, but my search turned up nothing.   My son is crossing the USA east to west and should finish in Seattle.  We will fly him back to Charlotte NC and then drive to Boston,  but how do we get the bike back?  One-way airfare is quite reasonable for him.   I figure he will need to track down a cardboard box to pack the bike (local bike shops being the obvious source),  but then can it be checked as luggage on the plane or shipped via UPS or greyhound?  What do most people do?  Does it just go on the plane as oversized baggage with an extra fee?  Obviously I haven't asked the airline yet.  I don't want him to sell or otherwise dispose of the bike because it has sentimental value, which will only be enhanced by this trip.   :)
