Help!! Names on Flight Reservations and Passport Must Match??

Jump to last reply

I am taking my granddaughter to Paris in Oct. In order to get FF, I did the 331 days before trip reservation. I tried to call my daughter before I made the reservations to see how granddaughter's name appeared on her birth certificate. She does not have her passport yet. Daughter was not home and in a panic to book the flights I went ahead and put her name on the reservation as I thought it probaby was. Wrong. Well, not totaly off, but I put just her middle initial, not her full middle name and she has a hyphenated last name, which I did not hyphenate.

I also just made reservations for inner-Europe flights on Easyjet, using the same names as our Delta flights over there and back, so they would all match at least. So, my question is, because she doesn't have her passport yet, does the passport name have to match her birth certificate name exactly and, if it does, is this going to cause us problems checking in for our flights. If this is a problem, can I change her name on all our flights without having to pay a penalty.

I'm reading that they are pretty strict about this now. Please tell me not to panic.
