Looks like they’re charging the highest fees in the airline industry for transporting a bike: $100 each way!
The International Bicycle Fund reports that, beginning in 2007, most airlines began charging for bicycles carried on trans-Atlantic flights to the tune of $80 to $160 each way. Before this year, ibike reported that airlines generally allowed bicycles to fly free, in lieu of a piece of baggage.
iBike.org describes Delta as, “Generally a leader in anti-bicycle policies.” So poo on them.
Other US carriers aren’t far behind at $80.
The article makes a great point that a fit cyclists with a bike weigh less than many passengers.
