DH bike in an Evoc BMX bag: good idea or not?

If I remove the fork, handlebars and wheels from my DH bike it seems I would be able to fit frame+fork+handlebars in an Evoc BMX bag, and the wheels in a separate wheelbag. Has anyone traveled by plane like this and what is your experience compared to a regular bike bag?

The pros would be:
- less unwieldy to carry (maybe?)
- easier to fit into rental cars/cabs
- can be checked in as regular luggage instead of bike (is this the case?, would that mean no insurance when damaged?)

Cons:
- hassle of disassembly/assembly of fork
- two cases instead of one
- less space in bag for other luggage
