Name on Reservation and name on identification are not exact

New Arrival

When I booked my flight I didn't realize that I didn't include my middle inital (I rarely use it.) However, it just hit me that I have my middle inital on my driver's license. Is this going to create an issue going through security? My first name and my last name are correct and match it is only that one little letter.

I don't think so for security, but if you have PreCheck or other KTN numbers it would need to match.

Should be fine ! Sometimes that happens to me and I just have to find a piece of ID that has that spelling whether it be a library card, member card etc 

 

only one one did I have to go back and get a new boarding pass so you should be good
