Flight Cases

Are flight cases such as the Walter Johnson generic to a particular size tuba (e.g 3/4, 4/4, etc.) or are they custom built to fit a specific make and model?

I don't fly very often, and even less frequently would I have occasion to take my tuba with me, so it doesn't make sense to spend $900 for a case that would only be used once. But I have a such as trip in January, and, although I have no performances scheduled, I'd love to have my 4/4 Nirschl with me to practice on. If a friend who owns a tuba of similar size (but not the same model) were to lend or rent me their flight case, would my tuba fit safely and securely?
