Appropriate Airplane Worthy Suitcase for either Dahon D7 and/or P8

I am considering the purchase of either a Dahon Speed D7 or a Speed P8, and have the following questions:

1. Which model would be easier to fit into an airline specs checked luggage
suitcase?

2. Which dimension suitcase should i purchase for this bike? For example, would this 29" Samsonite Oyster suitcase be appropriate for either a D7 or P8 to pack into?

3. Can you recommend other suitcases as well (that won't break the bank)?

Thanks!

Jeff

You have a couple of choices offered from Dahon:

Paying a bit extra for qood-excellent quality suitcases to transport your bike is well worth it. I would want my bike arriving in a decent shape rather than a broken bike that needs the entire trip's time to repair-if indeed it is repairable.
