    Middle name shown on passport but not flight tickets

    After completing my 6 week Europe trip, I can confirm that excluding my middle name did not effect check in at all. Emirates didn't mention anything, even budget airline such as Vueling didn't care.

    Cathay to cut worldwide capacity by 30% [Now 96%]

    Thanks tom, definitely not looking to travel or transit through Hong Kong anytime soon or the foreseeable future. My trip will proceed no matter what! I can't wait to get out of Australia for a bit.

    Cathay to cut worldwide capacity by 30% [Now 96%]

    yep, they cancelled my flight! Luckily there was still some availability around those dates for classic rewards economy. Have to first fly to Madrid instead of Barcelona. A shame, as it was going to be my partners first flight in Business.

    Cathay to cut worldwide capacity by 30% [Now 96%]

    Ideally I would like to book the tickets with my points and I will only have enough once refunded. Obviously that would be dependent on Reward booking availability. Otherwise I'll just have to purchase an overpriced one way ticket unfortunately.

    That is unfortunate and sounds like a terrible experience! Seems like the cheaper airlines are less inclined to let it slide and will gouge customers for it. That is real sneaky, should have taken a screenshot 😅 1649514436 Good to hear! I'm pretty much fully relieved about leaving my middle...

    Thanks prozac! This forum has helped slot with easing my stress and anxiety. Very happy and appreciative to get everyone's feedback and experiences. I'm hoping if the HK to Barcelona flight does get cancelled they can reroute me to a different European destination but I won't bank on that...

    Flight was redeemed using QFF. So I guess I'll need to wait until the flight is officially cancelled and see where to go from there

    Middle name shown on passport but not flight tickets

    Good to hear that it never caused any issues as I heard first name matching is much stricter. 1649405424 Thanks ddron. The general consensus here is that omitting the middle name isn't a big deal. Puts me at ease now.

    Yep, definitely not an ideal situation. I have to wait until the end of this month before the June schedule comes out. Won't know my next move until then and my flight is on the 7th of June 🥲

    Thanks for sharing Ellen! I feel reassured with everyone's experiences. Now I have to stress about the high probability of CX flights being cancelled 🤦‍♂️

    Middle name shown on passport but not flight tickets

    Think I'll definitely have to rebook once Cathay cancels my scheduled bookings. Will be a pain since I won't be notified until end of this month when they release the June schedule. Do people know how quick points are refunded when a flight is cancelled? I assume since it's not a Qantas...

    Middle name shown on passport but not flight tickets

    Thanks andye for the insight. My middle name ain't so pretty either either lol I definitely was speaking emotionally, it does seem like it's more trouble than it's worth. Just have to be extra careful when booking flight tickets, lesson learned!

    Thanks DC3, I just read through them as well. Seems reassuring so far. I wonder if anyone here has had experience of being denied boarding their flight.

    Middle name shown on passport but not flight tickets

    That is reassuring! I did book online, my flights are Qantas Classic Reward redemptions. After this I am considering removing my middle name from my passport and all other documentation.
