Yeah, gotta be careful on the specifics of "free". Many say free, with the caveat it adheres to regular baggage limits. It took me calling Brussels Airlines to understand their free was truly free with no size limits, just under 23kg, as only the weight limit was listed on the site.
Past that, I think it'd be risky taking a never assembled bike. What if you get there and don't have a necessary tool, or a part is missing/broken. Not to mention, customs on the other end will probably take an interest in a shiny boxed bike, more than one thats obviously been used.
