Suitcase for a Speed Uno

Wife made me drop down my budget until I am more experienced with folders so I ended up getting a Dahon Speed Uno from Thor. I want a suitcase for it when I take it back with me to Kuwait.

The AirPorter obviously does exactly what I need but costs as much as the bike.

Was checking out the Samsonite F'Lite 31" and was wondering if anyone has used this case for any similar sized bikes?

I love the Samsonite because I can use it as an actual suitcase when I am not carrying my bike. Luckily, I can avoid baggage charges thanks to selling my soul to the military.

Thanks for the advice!

This is a Dahon Vitesse in a Samsonite spinner.
