Road bike hard case with handlebar

A gigantic catch-all for Randonneuring (Audax), Bike-packing (Touring), and Commuting.

A couple of years ago I've seen a guy transporting his bike in an hard case at the airport. It had a really nice feature which was the possibility of transportting the bike without disassembling the handlebars. It had a T-shape allowing for the bike to be packed without messing with the handlebars.

Asked him for the case brand but now, that I'm evaluating the purshace of a hard travelling case, it seems that I've lost that note. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

Bike Box Alan Aero Easyfit? Not sure if they make the road version anymore, seems like they only have Tri/TT.

I use an Evoc's Road Bike Bag Pro
I think this bag COULD be too big for some airlines!
Never heard of any rejections though.

I only fly with national carriers who have a civilised attitude to customer service. Ryanair & Easyjet very often cost more once you add the bike! The Bike Box Alan one is nearly the same size as the Evoc one.

No such thing unless we are talking about something like a short haul service flying something with less than 19-seats (Cessna Caravan, SkyCourrier, Dehavland Twin Otter), as otherwise, you simply pay extra/oversize baggage fees.
