Travel Forums General Talk Name shortened in the e-ticket

In my passport, I have two first name and three last names. But in the e-ticket due to name exceed reason they have reduced my one first name and one last name and also reduced space between the last names. Will this make any issues during the checking time?

Following is an example.

Passport (first name/last name) : AAA BBB / XXX YYY ZZZ
E-ticket (first name/last name) : AAA / XXXYYY

They do this with all long names.
On the old paper tickets it was the same.
I also have a long full name and have never had a problem, as all the check-in desks understand the reason it's shortened like it is.

No issue. There is a limitation to number of symbols that can be used on the ticket (IATA regulation). Your first name 'AAA' is matching. Middle name can be ignored in many cases ('BBB'). Surname is important and you do have 'XXXYYY' even without the space this seems to fit the max limit.

You are fine!
