Appending MR etc seems to be a trend (ie becoming more commonplace) for air tickets/boarding passes and, particularly when names are relatively long, this might be without a space. Examples: Since very likely Aegean's custom, their staff should cope with interpreting this. The key point may be that the website you refer to does indeed recognise you ...

A number of airlines will append your title (MR, MRS, etc) to your first name when they issue your boarding passes, so it appears as SURNAME/FIRSTNAMEMR. It can appear this way on the gate agent's terminal as well. I have not had any personal experience with Aegean Airline's system, so can not say with 100% certainty, but likely you are OK.

These barriers have already been in place at some stations for some time. In the Netherlands, paper tickets (e.g. from the ticket machines) will be phased out between now and July 9. People who don't have an OV-chipkaart will then need to buy a disposable one and check in and out as well. NS announced the whole system will gradually go live after that with ...

I have tried this myself multiple times from my own country (Belgium) for different European countries (neighboring countries but also Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Portugal, Switzerland ...) In short, the only way to find out is trying. Some hints that might give you the best mileage: Forget vending machines. You won't get it there. Aim for main ...

I have been looking for all possible options and luckily I could find something. Please double check but I notice this site: http://speciale-aanbiedingen.nl.voyages-sncf.com/nl/start-verkoop?prex=T_AFF_520B5C23D5C9A&ectrans=1 You can book your ticket and it should cost 72.40 euros and 8 hours+ travel time. From Kwakow to Prague. On this site you can ...

Don't worry, it's a common way of writing it and all personnel at the airport knows how this works. I've worked in travel for over 10 years, so the rest of this post is based on that experience. In the "old times" airline reservation systems used to be white-on-blue screens full of cryptic codes and conventions. (And in fact, even though in many travel ...

Some of the gates have the possibility to read QR-codes from printed e-tickets. I noticed international tickets sometimes have these as well. For now, indeed, there will be manned gates (as Relaxed mentions), but in the future I assume that the QR-code on an international ticket will open the gate for you. Maybe it does already now? (June 2014) Too bad I ...

To summarize and nuance the earlier answers, I know from experience that it's possible to buy tickets in or between third countries at train stations in Europe but it's often a frustrating experience. Some trains might not be available or it might be possible to get a ticket but not to book a seat. Sometimes it even depends on who you happen to ask, some ...

Generally you cannot do this. Your baggage will be checked to your final destination. If you ask them to check it to the midway point, they will know what you are doing, and either refuse, or cancel your ticket entirely. The only two exceptions I'm aware of are: If you have a long, overnight layover, the airline will often allow you to retrieve and ...

Yes you can, although in some cases it might be bit complicated. I checked the website of the Dutch railways where I noticed the following announcement: Online, NS International sells a wide range of both trips departing from the Netherlands to other countries (one-way and return) and coming from abroad to the Netherlands (one-way and return), as well as ...

Unlimited? Yes, but different from what you are thinking. When reading the link you gave us with information about Any Belgian Station tickets, it says: Any Belgian Station tickets are valid on Eurostar trains to Brussels, and then on any suitable connecting train service from Brussels to Belgian destinations, as long as you complete your journey within ...

Via smartphone You could buy tickets through the NMBS/SNCB app. These count as a valid ticket. Only available for iOS (Iphone). Other operation systems have the app, and you could look up timetables, but it is not possible to buy tickets through these apps (yet). Only through the iOS app. Via mobile website You could buy tickets through the mobile website ...

If the two airlines you are flying have an interline agreement and allow you to check your baggage through to the final destination, you would be considered a transit passenger. If they do not, then you have to reclaim your bags and recheck them, requiring you to go through immigration and be subject to visa rules for Philippine nationals. Your best bet is ...

Put simply, no, you can't do this - for multiple reasons. Firstly lets ignore check luggage for a moment. Any time you fail to board a flight, the airline will almost certainly cancel any subsequent flights on that ticket. So if you book MEM-NRT-HKG-NRT-MEM, then fail to board the NRT-HKG flight, then the remainder of your ticket - including the NRT-MEM ...

First, are you sure you need to print your tickets? I know some trains require physical printed tickets but many trains, buses and airlines will be OK checking the ticket on a smartphone (if you have one). Assuming you've already considered that and you do need to print the tickets then you have a few options. Internet cafes are actually surprisingly ...

It sounds from your story that you were sent to secondary inspection at US customs and immigration, not secondary security screening at security - that's 3 of the 4 S's, the 4th being Selected or Selection. Secondary inspection at US customs and immigration (preclearance if you're in Canada; on arrival if you come from elsewhere) involves searching your ...

I just talked to Sharaf Travel agency in Dubai (+97143965186) to clear my doubts. They told me following things: I will not need transit visa if I am not leaving the transit area at Dubai airport. I can check-in my baggage at Mumbai airport and tell the airline staff that I will like to pick up my baggage in the transit area. From the transit area, I can ...

It's difficult to know for sure but it seems too risky to rely on it if your ability to transit without visa depends on it (worse case scenario, you could be denied boarding on the return leg and be forced to pay much more for a direct flight or a proper connection). It's more likely to be possible if the airlines are both full service airlines from the same ...

No, you'll not get a refund. RAC tickets are often shared between passengers. You had two tickets and you got one, but often there are cases when you have one ticket and you get half. Meaning, you get to share your berth with a stranger! Indian Railways charges you to transport you from point A to point B. For most cases, traveling is important, and even ...

Most of the times, booking separately will be cheaper (the travel agency has to make its profit) but it is not a definite rule: they can sometimes negotiate discounts and get better prices; just compare the prices...

Ok, so the reality uncovered: You can take any train it seems, at least on board of both trains I took they said that any ticket for this or the previous day is valid. However, nobody checked anyone in any of these trains, and I got similar experiences from other people I met in the last couple days. At all the stations, the boarding was a complete chaos; ...

Officially, no, you cannot take a non-idTGV train with an idTGV ticket, even on a strike day. The official answer about what happens if your idTGV train is canceled due to the strike is Nothing! idTGV handles everything! You will automatically receive an email with your compensation in the form of two vouchers for 100% and 20% of the price of your ...

Yes you can. Inside of Europe Local European train stations offer you the possibility to buy international tickets from and to where ever you want in Europe through either their website or their local ticket shops. Outside of Europe I'm not sure if they do, but if they don't, you could always ask them to go the European international railway website and ...

After struggling with renfe.com for hours, and rifling through all sorts of other user experiences online, here's my humble addition to the list of tips out there: --Don't use Chase cards. Chase doesn't need to be "verified by visa" (or the equivalent for master card)--but renfe does! So you stall just because of that detail and can't figure out what ...
