Bike Boxes at the Berlin-Tegel Airport

We will be flying out of Berlin, Germany in August (after flying into Milan, Italy and biking for a while):

Does anyone know if it is easy and/or guaranteed to get bike boxes at the Berlin-Tegel airport? It is such a convenient option, but also wracks my nerves so (what if there aren't any boxes!!).

As a follow up: is there a good way to find out if boxes are available, i.e. how to contact the airline locally, which airline to ask?

Thanks!

Just call the airport. I can't recall if the boxes are supplied by the airport or the airline. If they do have boxes make sure that you take boxing tape along because they won't have it. I know that from experience.
