It is absolutely essential that the name of the passenger match the name on the passport EXACTLY! Over the past two years the TSA has become very strict with this. If middle names are on passports, but missing or only an initial on the boarding pass, the TSA agents are sending passengers back to the airline to correct the ticket. The passengers are not getting past security. The airlines when dealing with this are imposing fines to both the passenger and the booking agency correcting the error at the airport. The airline is fined by the TSA for not having the correct information when they send over the passenger list to the TSA 72 hours prior to the flight. And if the current class of service is not available, the passenger can be charged full fare for the new ticket. As you can see, this causes a lot of people a whole lot of problems and the folks at the airport just don’t have a sense of humor about this.
IMPORTANT! Include 1 copy of your passport ID page.
