I gather that a standard bike box is about 90", l+w+h. Most airlines specify <62" Am I missing something here?
I've only flown with the bike once(Southwest) but likely will need to again, and don't want to go thru the trim and stuff dance again. If I rode anything larger than 50 cm, don't think I could have met the box size challenge without taking the fork off.
What experience have you had showing up with a boxed DF? Did you cut the box down to <62", or did you get aboard with a standard box, no hassle?
