Loosening the strings just a little (but not too much, or the soundpost can fall), packing every square inch of open space in the case with socks and towels to keep things from getting banged around too much, then sealing the case and wrapping it in bubble wrap...  I was lucky in one of the travels (both were with an orchestra), in that they put all of our large instruments into a container to be loaded directly onto the plane, and not bounced around on conveyor belts.  Even so, when a relative travelled across the country to loan me a much better cello, we purchased a seat on the plane for it, rather than risk getting it dropped.

A musician friend of mine, Roger McGuinn, always buys an extra seat for his guitar. Same reasoning, I guess.
