2 first names on passport but only 1 in my e-ticket.

I booked a ticket for December holiday and my agent only entered 1 of my 2 first names (as the second is too long) with my surname. My passport showed my 2 first names middle name and surname. Will there be a problem?

Shouldn't be a problem - middle names don't matter

we don't know. We don't work for the airline or the immigration agency. Please ask the airline

The issue here is not middle names. The request from most airlines is to enter the info exactly as it appears on the official id. That is all we can go by

I have a friend whose first name and surname, as shown in her passport, are both double-barrelled: A-B C-D. Her plane tickets typically show this as ACD, i.e. missing out the second part of her first name as if it were a middle name, and this has never been a problem. But the only people who can confirm that this is OK in your case are the staff of the airline concerned.
