    Middle initial on ticket, not on passport

    Just wanted to update, I took everyone’s advice including printing out all emails from airlines/TSA/etc, got to airport 3 hours ahead and not one hiccough, no one even batted an eye— thank you all, HNY!

    I paid full price but can't select a seat until 23 hours before check in?

    Don't know if this helps or not, I also always book on UAL whether paying or with miles, and then simply call the international carrier. This has happened 3 times in the past 5 years, most recently an upcoming trip in December. I have called (Lufthansa as well as Swiss), and they have assigned...

    Middle initial on ticket, not on passport

    Thank you. I went ahead and called Swiss Air again. The agent very politely refused to allow me to speak with a supervisor, told me I had to have my travel agent call for the "Trade Support Line", and they could not do anything further for me on the phone. I verified with Swiss Air...

    Middle initial on ticket, not on passport

    I made a rookie error and my middle initial is on my UAL ticket, but this initial is not on my passport. I booked the tickets on United, and didn’t realize my middle initial is on my Mileage Plus account (This Mileage Plus Account has since been corrected). For illustration, my ticket reads...
