My flight ticket with Norwegian Air doesn't contain my middle name. I thought I better check with the airline this is OK (apparently it usually is).

The call center person said it may or may not cause problems!

I have to go through my booking agent to change this. And they are terrible. I'm not even sure I can!

Anyone have any first hand experience with this issue?

My passport has my middle name, I never buy a ticket with it and it's never caused an issue
You should be fine,

Any idea about the API?
I've just gone to do this and it's pre filled with my first name and last name. No option for middle name.

I've flown with Norwegian loads. My tickets don't contain my middle name either. Never been a problem.

Who cares about your middle name, lol :p

Thanks for this.

I'm not sure about this either.
And again, searching for it gets mixed results

It's been so long since I've flown and it shows!

I've just flown from the UK to Munich via Amsterdam (all KLM) and my passport show 2 middle names, my tickets/boarding passes show first name and surname only, no issues.

As far as I know the whole system world wide only uses Forename and Surname no option for Middle names.

I had a flight with Norwegian for work a while back. When I was given my ticket at the airport it had my first name spelt wrong. That had me worried but they still let me on the flight without a problem.

It wont be a problem. Ive flown with them 30x and and have had a combination or with and without and spelled wrong and no ones even mentioned it.
I dont think budget lines have the time to even care about stuff like this :p

Thanks guys. Didn't know where else to turn. Thanks so much for your help.

This forum never ceases to amaze me with wealth of knowledge on really niche subjects.

Much appreciated. I guess the CS agent was just trying to cover her back. But saying "it might be OK" isn't the most helpful!

is it an above average middle name? If not you may be out of luck.
