Names entered on air ticket without a space between 1st &2nd

Hi,

This may seem silly but knowing how fussy checkins can be I need to ask if my ticket showing my christian name and middle name as one will cause me a problem on an International flight.

Example, John Edward Smith on ticket as Johnedward smith

My passport shows John Edward Smith

I'm widely travelled and have never before received a ticket with my first and second names joined up.

Not a problem. Many reservations systems do not have a middle name field, so they just combine it with your first name.

I have had this happen a lot with multiple airlines and it has never been a problem.

Happens on a lot of airlines. Sometimes I'm booked with just first name, sometimes first and middle names are joined, sometimes separate... really doesn't matter as long as your passport matches at least the first and last names.

I had an Easyjet one and my name was one long word, I've noticed this on a lot of airlines.

What about your last name being combined with Jr.? Happened when I booked online and I don't know how to change it or just not worry about it.

I always get MRSBARBARAL SMITH on my tickets from Continental. Never been a problem. (And no, that's not my real name but you get the idea!)
