My surname is blank in my passport while in my given name i use first name and middle name. In the airline ticket, agent has put "Mr" as first name and my given name as last name.

Is this correct practice?

  • I already had my name wrote in different ways in airline tickets and I never had problems. I have two surnames, and sometimes, they write my First Name and my first Surname together.

Yes, this is common. Many airlines render names as LASTNAME/FIRSTNAMEMR, which means that without a last name, your name will be shown as just FIRSTNAMEMR (or maybe even /FIRSTNAMEMR).
