Based on your experience, which one would you recommend to buy or not to buy? Trico Sports Iron Case, Performance Cargo Case, Thule's Round Trip 699?

bags, not boxes

The club I was in California own not boxes but bags for members to borrow. I used it many times. I was never asked nor charged the bike charges by the airlines.

The bike(s) survive well (so far). Oh yes, all my flights were direct flights and I usually check in early. That might make a difference.

Race Case

I love my Bike Pro Race Case. It's a soft sided rolling case (four casters) that moves very easily and can be put into the trunk or back seat of a car. It protects the bike very well - I've never had any damage to the bike. It's much easier to deal with than the ones you've named.

best case

Just borrowed a Bike Pro Race Case.
What a pleasure.
Compared to it, the Trico is an unwieldy beast.
On 4 casters the Bike Pro nearly wheels itself through the airport. No problem simultaneously wheeling that, pulling a suitcase, carrying backpack.
Though dimentionally nearly as large as a Trico, it seems smaller. Maybe it's the rounded corners and soft sides.....but it fits in a taxi(an empty trunk or across the back seat). You'd need a van or wagon with a more $$$ in transit.
In my opinion it's well worth the higher cost if you're gonna use it much.
