Just FYI- us air charges $200 for a bike. Found that out the hard way. Cost more than my plane ticket!

I'm trying to figure out how to get my bike out to Des Moines for the Hyvee Tri in 2 weeks. So they charged $200!? Was it in a bike case or a box?

Bonzai charges $100 total for disassembling and reassembling + shipping fees, so was just contemplating taking it on my Delta flight - but looks like their bike fees are just as high....

Just to be clear, that is $200 EACH WAY. If you are planning to travel with your bike, I'd suggest Jet Blue or Southwest.

Frontier has no extra charges for bikes (though checked bag fees still apply). If you're flying Delta/USAir/United/American, it may be cheaper to Fedex/UPS your bike to your hotel than ship it on a plane. (or use one of the bike shipping services out there).
