on my IST-ZRH-MUC flight in Y I had no problems. at check-in in IST they looked at my bigger bag and weighted it. had almost 10kg and is slightly above size limits, but no problem, i got the carry-on "sticker". and i had a notebook bag as well. (flight was ~80% full)

but good luck to you for future trips.
As it turns out, I had to fly unexpectedly this week (on 3 hours notice) and flew from JFK through Istanbul on Turkish. I have not flown Y transatlantic in over ten years and was expecting the worst on an unknown airline. I was very pleasantly surprised with the entire experience and particularly the very pleasant professionalism of the FAs. And, they did not care about the size weight or number of carry ons. Aside from the coach seating ( which I think may be slightly more spacious that the norm) I had a very pleasant experience. They even were nice to let me recharge my laptop in the galley area.

In two months I do the Swiss codeshare again, tape measure in hand.
