    I will be traveling on TK from Zurich to IST, then IST to YUL on a UAL coach award ticket. The weight limits are vague on their web site. How strict are they with the limits, will they weigh the carry ons?

    I have read that they are not too stringent on carry on limits, with no reply's I am assuming it is true. Any comments?

    I'm travelling on TK on Sunday. According to my ticket receipt:

    ** For baggage carriages with Piece Concept, passengers traveling at economy class to points where the free baggage limit is 23kg, will be charged 80usd for each piece between 23-32kg.
    23kg is approximately 50 pounds. 32kg is approximately 70 pounds.

    Lacking any widespread rumors/confirmation that TK doesn't check, I would be prepared to pay $80 for each bag over 50 pounds, and be prepared to be denied bags over 70 pounds. If you get lucky and they don't check, then consider it a lucky day. But come prepared, is my advice.

    [Edit: website is pretty clear, and reconciles properly with the above info.

    To follow-up, I just finished boarding TK8 from IAD. No attention whatsoever seemed to be paid to luggage size or weight at both the checkin counter and during the boarding process.
