By mistake, I booked my flight using initials for my first and middle names. On my id, both names are written in full; the last name is the same. Can I travel on a domestic flight with this mistake?

    Domestic flight where? They are usually more sticklers on the last name. I have several misspellings of my name however the last name was always consistent and always got away with it when noticed – user 56513 Nov 23 '18 at 7:08

  • I had the same issue once and the information desk at the airport told me that you can have until three letters mistaken. – olta Nov 23 '18 at 9:14
  • I think it all depends on the country and security. In the US I would expect a hassle at the TSA checkpoint. – gamma_sponge Nov 30 '18 at 19:42
