In my legal documents, in my passport too my full name is mentioned but while booking the flight ticket i didn't mentioned my full name, just mentioned my first name and the last name because my first name is my surname too. so would that be a problem while boarding in domestic flight?
My experience is the following
- I have three middle names and never use them on any airplane ticket.
- Many airlines state in their terms & conditions that they require your names for the ticket as it appears on your government official ID (in my case it's with the 3 middle names)
- I never use my middle name though, and never had an issue. Worth mentioning is the following: on the first part of an e-ticket or your boarding pass, you will usually see only your first and last name, and sometimes not even this.
Also, simple spelling errors in the name don´t matter to anyone in most of the cases.
So, I would say it's not an issue at all, and I´ve travelled in North America, Africa, Asia and Oceania without any problems.
