  1. We're flying with Lufthansa to Geneva in August and they charge EUR100 per bike in each direction. Airlines do have differing rules depending on weight and size of baggage as well as where flight originates and lands. So far the best seems to be Qatar as their baggage rules state: 30kg and a maximum dimension of 300cm (118in) for economy class Maximum dimension = length + width + heightQatar Airways accepts any sporting equipment as checked baggage as part of the passenger's free checked baggage allowance mentioned on the ticket. Any sporting equipment which exceeds the free allowance will be subject to excess baggage rates. Bicycles may be carried as checked baggage or cargo. They must be properly packed in a strong purpose-made cardboard box. Tyres should be deflated, pedals removed, and handlebars turned and fixed lengthways. So from my understanding as long as your box does not exceed 45kgs and the max dimension there will be no additional charge. You'd probably have to pack all your clothes etc. into your bike box or your hand luggage
