My middle name on my passport is missing one letter, so different from my ticket. Will this be an issue? Doroty vs Dorothy

  • Is the passport or the ticket right?

  • @JoErNanO The ticket is right, according to "on my passport is missing one letter". Apr 1 '15 at 10:43
  • There is a good answer at the question Middle name missing on flight reservation, API needs middle name Apr 1 '15 at 10:51
  • This should be fixed and the link changed to @VolkerSiegel's -- the linked answer is last name but this question is about middle name.

Most likely not a problem but at least in one case Passenger refused flight over missing letter on airline ticket -- but the title is sensational if you read carefully all the airline said they can't guarantee the connecting airline won't have a problem.

This thread reports a number of cases when this hasn't been a problem.

This forum post says

Turns out I've been flying with different middle names on my [driving licence] and passport for years. Tickets match passport, but I've often showed my DL and no one has batted an eye.

Summary: I would call the airline especially if you are connecting.

    Hmmm... I do not know what a DL is - but independant of that, I would expect that it's only relevant that the passport and the ticket match, nothing else - simply because only these two should be required at the airport - or am I missing something? Apr 1 '15 at 10:49
  • DL is driving license. Often it is good enough if it's not international flight.
