I am flying from Philadelphia Intl Airport in April of 2016

Customer Question

I am flying from Philadelphia Intl Airport in April of 2016 on a multi-leg trip to Portugal, then Barcelona, then Amsterdam and back to Philly.
My ticket has been issued in "Donna B. Kinnaman" but my passport has my full name: "Donna Bird Kinnaman"
I have checked with British Airways and Iberia and both tell me as long as my first and last name are correct on both documents, it will be fine.
Will that be fine when I show the boarding pass in Philadelphia?

Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. You are the only person who can help me get credit before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that by giving me a positive rating with 3 or more stars or any of the smiling faces.

Also, if you want me to be your personal TSA Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert.

ANSWER: Yes, absolutely this will not be an issue for travel. It would be a problem if any of the names were different. But the vast majority of travelers don't even use middle names or initials and they can still travel. This is more than most people use. As long as the initial matches the actual name, this will be no problem at all.

Kindly remember to give me a positive rating before leaving this site today. I do not get a salary here, so your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. If that does not happen, it is as if I never worked, which I am sure you agree would not be an ideal outcome. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, in order to help me get credit for doing my job.

Thank you!
