What are carrying in there, the crown jewels?
I throw my bike in a transparent plastic bag at the airport and take one panniers as carry-on (with the expensive stuff in it) and I check the the other (the one with the alcohol stove).
At the other end I re-unite my bike and panniers, pump up the tires, straighten the bars and re-fit the pedals and ride off.
I used to box my bike, but what for? Where are you going to store the box? Are you going to drag it onto a train?
