We were looking into sending some of my fiances belongings from Ukraine to the US and the fedex and DHL prices were over 1000 dollars for a 50 lb. box. Has anyone found a better/cheaper method to ship packages?

if she is planning to fly with Aerosvit - she can bring two suitcases this totals to 44 kg.

Aerosvit went bankrupt and doesn't exist since 2 years ago. If you fly via Ukraine International Airlines or Aeroflot (with transfer in Moscow), you can also bring 2 suitcases at 23kg each (Aeroflot doesn't really care about overweight bags either until you get above 26-27kg or so, so you can bring 2 suitcases at 26kg each without issues, they'll just mark them as 23kg). They also do not weigh your carry-on so as long as it's not too huge, you can bring gold bricks aboard and they won't care.
