I am planning on cycling from Barcelona to Gibraltar in November of this year. What I would like some advice on is picking a European airline to fly with. I am planning on flying Air Transat from Vancouver, Canada to either England, Germany or France, then hopping on a flight to Barcelona. Air Transat only requires me to deflate my tires, take off my pedals, then put my bike in a plastic bag, which the airline provides. So easy!
Is there an European airline that is okay with my bike in only a plastic bag?
Plus, any tips/raves that you would like to share about my chosen route, I am happy to hear them.
