I will be flying from USA Chicago to LIS and return. ( Economy )
And one ticket from UK London to LIS and return ( Economy)

I am concern about the exact size of the carry on size 22x16x8
Are the wheels part of the 22" and is the thickness has to be 8" and not 9" or 9.5".
My carry on are like 9" thick so afraid they wont fit in the measuring box they used.
If that's the case then i need to get an 8" thick carry on.

On a recent departure from BCN to LIS saw no weighing or size checking. As an added bonus scored a 321 in the long-haul configuration so had lie flat in J for a two hour flight which was a nice perk.

I've seen plenty of TAP staff walking the line in LIS with portable scales and checking hand baggage for weight and size.

Recently flew TAP from YYZ to LIS. LIS to OPO, OPP to LIS. Then LIS to YYZ.

For flights within Portugal (ie. Between LIS and OPO), during boarding, they did check to make sure carry on luggage fit within the sizer (only luggage with wheels not duffle type bags). This did make a few people angry as they had to pay extra and check in their carry on I did not see carry on or personal items being weighed.

Prior to my trip I was worried about the limit as I did some research online and read many complaints, again mostly for flights within Portugal.

Hope this helps!
