You didn't say what your question was, though. Are you travelling with 1 checked bag plus the bike
or 2 checked bags plus the bike?

I just got off the phone with Continental regarding an upcoming flight I have from Paris to Houston.
Not a written resonse, but the agent checked with 2 different supervisors. She said since I'm
traveling with 1 checked bag and 1 bike then I just get the $80 charge for bikes (each way). If you
have 2 checked bags and 1 bike then you get the $80 charge plus the charge for excess baggage.

She also said that the section in their instructions was somewhat confusing and that the final word
on whether I would get charged the $80 would rest with the ticket clerk at the check-in; the charge
would not be more than $80 each way, though, since I will only have one suitcase with the bike.

Total flight cost is my concern, though. I made my reservations a couple of months ago for an August
flight. My ticket was $415 and the next lowest fare I could find was $650. Continental still works
out as cheaper even with the charge since my total fare will be $415 + 160 = $575.

Re: Airline Policies - Bikes as Luggage

One reference : http://www.continental.com/travel/po...age/sports.asp

Twice I've flown international (Sept 2001, Feb 2002) in the last few years and twice I'vehad agents
try to charge me the bike fee. Both times I knew the policy and objected. In both cases consulting
the written policy, with my assistance, got the fee waived -- bicycles packed in a hard case (as
opposed to cardboard box), within the baggage limit, weren't charged, except for travel between the
US, the Carribean, and/or Canada.

If that's changed since Feb 2002, I wouldn't know about it.

Re: Airline Policies - Bikes as Luggage

Both the site you cited and my post indicated a $80 bike charge for domestic flights. If you talked
them out of it, more power to you! Here is the question I ask them:

"I am told that there is no extra charge for boxed bicycles when traveling from the US to a foreign
country provided that the boxed bicycle is carried as one of no more than two pieces of checked
luggage. Is this still correct?"

I was told that the policy changed in September, 2002. Lots of fee changes around that time,
as I recall.

Re: Airline Policies - Bikes as Luggage

I reviewed American Airlines and United. It appears in both cases the bike fee has been replaced
with a reduction in the oversized baggage fee to 62 inches (115 inches absolute max). My Trico
Ironcase is around 80 inches or so. One may be able to manage by packing frame and wheels
separately, and using that as two checked bags.

Re: Airline Policies - Bikes as Luggage

That's why I now have a Bike Friday (Pocket Rocket Pro), which goes on board as regular baggage.

I flew my full-size bike last summer to Europe on Air France and was not charged extra.

Dear Mr. Juniper:

Thank you for your response to my e-mail.

I did check with International reservations and to carry a bicycle international there is first a
fee of $80.00 just to check the bicycle. Then because the bicycle does not fall within your free
baggage allowance you would also pay the excess baggage fee to travel from San Francisco to Paris.
That fee is $110.00. You would be charged a total of $190.00 each direction to travel with the
bicycle at this time. Your ticket allows you to check 2 free bags (suitcases only) and 1 carry on.
You may then check excess pieces. The bicycle is an excess piece of baggage. Not all excess pieces
are changed the additional $80.00 service fee that bicycles are charged.

Thank you for considering Continental Airlines in your upcoming travel plans for your bicycle club.
