Does middle name matter when booking flights?
As a matter of fact, we usually leave out the middle name on a daily basis. So it is not uncommon if you accidentally forget to include this information when booking a flight. According to airlines, you are required to use your full legal name as it appears on your official, government-issued photo identification (such as your passport, permanent resident card, citizenship card).
Please note: Airlines reservation systems do not accept punctuations in the name such as hyphens, commas, apostrophes, or periods, so please leave these out. It is extremely important not to use nicknames, abbreviations, or other names (such as your married name) if they do not appear on your identification. In order to board your flight, your photo identification must match the name on your ticket. Airlines are generally unable to change the name on airline tickets after they have been purchased.
