it is ok that the name is reverse order, what should be the deal??? Your name is John Matthew and you are male? Then you will board the plane, don't worry (people at the check-in should not be retarded John)!! When are you flying?

It won't be a problem at all. The order in which the names is written is irrelevant. It is quite common to write the last name first.. Really, yo uhave nothing to worry about.

On air tickets, last name is usually listed first. The "MR." part is usually grouped with your first name since not all gender can be determined by names. E.g. SMITH/KELLYMR or SMITH/KELLYMS

You have nothing to worry about
