I’m taking my first international flight this year. I’ve got my passport and bought the plane tickets. However, I noticed that my middle name on the ticket is missing the last 2 letters. I contacted the airline and they said that middle name doesn’t have to match passport. I just want to make sure that is correct, I don’t want to get stuck at some airport because my middle name is missing 2 letters on the plane tickets.

    For what it’s worth I’ve never run into an airline that prints middle names correctly on the ticket, I’m pretty sure anyone that’s been working security more than an hour is used to it.

    My husband’s middle name starts with A, so his name straight up gets changed to the feminine version of his name on tickets sometimes! He’s had a comment about it maybe once ever, and it was just the TSA agent joking about it.

      Oh wow. Thanks for the peace of mind. I’m never traveled internationally, and I always assumed there was zero tolerance and everything has to be exact.
