    Airport security:
    After spending years of frequent airtravel with handluggage, and never having had any problems with that bag of liquids, Lisbon airport finally did it!!! So, watch out!
    I stuck my seethrough bag with my cosmetics - the one I always use (that is, in Spain, Italy, France) onto the tray & got told by the guard it was too big. No, not what was in it, but the bag itself. No way he would let me get through with this bag folded over (which I do to double-avoid leakage ...). So: they have vending machines all over the security area where you have to buy a standard size bag inserting a one-Euro-coin (which, thanks to good old Murphy, I did not have), so it took a while until I found some traveller willing to change my 5-€-bill - the airport does not provide this service.
    No idea if this is legal, but I am sure they make some money that way to help with their deficit ...

      The airport website gives the standard European bag size limit of one litre:

      ana.pt/en-US/Aeroportos/lisb...

      I would guess that your bag was over the EU size limit. Other airports may well have turned a blind eye (depends on the individual airport and the staff on duty) but I've seen passengers at e.g. Stansted having to buy (£1) new bags when theirs were too large. It's certainly legal; the onus is always on the passenger to ensure that the bag size, and its contents, fit the EU and/or airport rules.
