Delta ticket concern

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a concern about my Delta ticket. I am flying to Detroit on April 19. My fiancé asked me to sign up for the delta sky miles program so I did. On the website, they asked for first name, middle name, and last name. I have two give names (ex Maria Isabella). Like most Filipinos, i also carry my moms maiden last name as my middle name (middle initial). I did not include my middle name on the website though and just included given names and last name.

To make a long story short, I read afterwards that delta tickets should match my passport information. My passport has my given name, middle name, and last name. Delta ticket doesn't have my middle name :(

Will i encounter any issues before boarding? My fiancé will call Delta but just want to know if any one had a similar issue before.

Thanks :)

Use whatever name you have in your passport when you make flight reservations. Perhaps you can call delta and add your middle name to the boarding ticket.

Anyways I'm sure your Philippines passport has also some sort of ID number on it, right? My argentine passport has an id number on the id page so when you make flight reservations you use that too.

I wouldn't worry about the middle name. My middle name is in my passport, yet it is NEVER on my airline tickets or boarding passes. It has NEVER been an issue.

However, I've been told that the boarding pass must match exactly the SkyMiles account information in order for miles to accrue. I do not use my middle name for my Skymiles account.

Here is a Q&A on the TSA's website. Keep in mind that this is for US airlines and your mileage may vary for other common carriers; foreign or domestic. I recommend that you contact the airlines prior to the travel date to determine their policy.

Q: So, would the use on the ticket of a shortened form of the first name (eg, Jim, Tom, Ed) with no middle name be a problem for the next few months?

A: TSA has built some flexibility into the processes regarding passenger name accuracy. Because Secure Flight data requirement timelines are related to booking dates, not travel dates, if you have booked a flight that uses a shorter name such as Jim, Tom or Ed, for the near future, you should not notice any changes. Other common minor differences between the passenger’s ID and the passenger’s reservation information, such as the use of a middle initial instead of a full middle name or no middle name/initial at all, also should not cause a problem for the passenger. Over time, passengers should strive to obtain consistency between the name on their ID and the travel information they use for booking flights.

Q: Your blog says that in the near future your name on a boarding pass will have to match the name on your ID such as passports etc. As of now many airlines don't have a provision to enter a middle name when purchasing tickets online. So, how far away is the "near future" and what kind of coordination will be in place to make sure the airlines are on board with this?” I hope that there will not be any problems for the people who do not have their middle names on the tickets.

A: Secure Flight will be phased-in and each airline will be incorporating the necessary changes into their systems over the coming months. Passengers shouldn't be concerned if particular airlines don't ask them to provide the additional information right away; it should not impact their travel. Each airline will request this information as their capability to capture it is integrated into their individual systems.

Q: I purchased tickets last week for a trip from ORD to CUN, due to credit card issues (fraud alert went up on my card when trying to purchase the tickets) my session timed out, while on the phone w/ my credit card company I put all information back in but ended up putting one of the names in last/first. I have called the airline and they assure me it won't be an issue but of course I'm less worried about the airline and more worried about whether TSA will allow it to go through. Can you please give me any insight on what we can expect and if there is anything we can do about it now? I asked about paying to reissue the ticket correctly but the airline says it's not necessary. Thank you.

A: If you entered your name incorrectly when making the reservation, you should follow the airline’s guidance regarding correcting the mistake.
