Mercian is in Derby so you might be in for a bit of a walk...

I've never heard of an airline charging someone extra for arbitrary stuff in their suitcase. They're only bothered if you've gone and put a bomb or five kilos of heroin in there. What you should be really worried about is when the overworked and underpaid baggage loaders throw your suitcase on the plane, off the plane, dump heavy stuff on it...

Your bike will probably be smashed to bits, to be honest. When I sent a bike internationally I did it through DHL in a box heavily padded out with clothes and dummy axles to stop them bending it shut. I've seen too many get ruined at the airport.
