I am not a frequent traveler, at least not yet.
I would like to know if a 24" computer monitor in its original box the size of a large luggage would be allowed on board a plane even for an extra charge?
Moreover, I'd like to know what are the safest (and hopefully not expensive) ways I could ship the monitor.
PS: I would prefer to ship it as an extra check-in but I am afraid it gets damaged at some point due to mis-handling especially at the destination airport as I know for a fact that luggage is not well handled at the destination I will be arriving at.
This will be a one-time shipment. And it is one package.

alternative idea 1: I think that taking it as hand luggage without the box would be possible as the monitor can be pivoted in landscape and portrait mode. Moreover the stand can be detached. The main weight is in the stand. Suggestions for protection and transport bag would be appreciated.
alternative idea 2: Detaching the screen and packing it in the luggage between clothes would probably keep it safe? And taking the stand as hand luggage along my backpack.
