    My husband and I have tickets to travel roundtrip from Hong Kong to Phuket by Thai Airways. My husband booked the tickets through Travelocity. He left out our middle names because the field wasn't mandatory (unlike first and last names), but now the non-refundable ticket names do not match our passports (which do include middle names).

    We would like to have a strong confirmation that the missing middle names won't cause us a problem when we get to the airport in Hong Kong to board the flight to Thailand. Alternatively, if the middle names can be added to our tickets so the names match our passports, our concerns would also be alleviated.

    Thank you in advance for any advice and insights!!

    Sincerely,
    swyeh

    You'll be fine. Airline typically do not have middle name ability in the booking process. As long as everything else matches you will be fine.

    Yes, you'll be fine. I had that same moment of panic when my husband's Aeromexico ticket didn't include his middle name, and it didn't matter.

    It's fine. Some airlines don't even have a middle name field on their booking engine.

    Thank goodness this is a non-issue! I fly to Europe, as well as domestically, with first/last name only on my ticket. So I know my colleagues are right ... you'll be fine.

    My name and surnames appear inverted in my ticket, aeromexico refuses to correct it with my passport and tells me that I must buy another ticket. lanza castillo, caterina caterina, lanza castillo. There is no common sense. What should I do.
