I have several sets of friends who take periodic European cycling vacations. They all use S&S equipped tandems. They all seem very satisfied with their choice.

My daughter and son-in-law took their bike on a plane in a huge, 8' long, Santana shipping box for the regular bicycle upcharge and I know one other couple who used a commercial tandem shipping box. Both of those trips, however, were prior to 9/11. One thing to consider is what to do with the big shipping container while you are on vacation.

Relative to the amount of inconvenience, the reassembly process isn't all that much different however you do it.
