Wrap it up well (we only used cardboard) and it goes through the special baggage type department. I had no problems going from Bristol to Geneva but had a slightly bent pannier returning. Think we paid a bit extra to take it…£20 ish a few year back.
Has anyone ever taken a Tandem as baggage on a flight. I am planning to fly my canondale MTB tandem to Toulouse with easyjet this summer, there seems to be no ‘size’ restrictions on a bicycle.
We’ve flown ours all over the world. We pipe lag the tubes and bubble wrap/cardboard anything else we’re concerned about. As for getting it on, it’ll be ok on any of the wide bodied jets and anything down to a Dash 8 in size. Ours just fitted into the latter….
