The charges for late drop-off and for canceling a reservation less than one month in advance are both $25.
To reserve a case call:
1201 Paddock Dr.

The cases are Performance Cargo Cases. There are three: two of a newer vintage and one older.

You will need to remove your seat, handlebars, any racks, etc….
Check your airline's website to get the maximum allowed weight and dimensions and any applicable charges. You might be able to fly the bike for free on domestic flights—as one of your allowed (usually two) checked bags—or they may charge you $90 (or so) each way.
International should always be free (as one of your allowed checked bags) according to the Warsaw Convention on Air Travel of 1929.
It is advisable to bring a printed copy of the policy with you to airport check-in and be aware that TSA will open the box and may dig through it.
BikeAccess.net is a good resource for more information & experiences.
