I didn't use our middle names on our Pegasus booking can we still fly?

Hi, when we booked our flights there wasn't an option for middle names so carelessly i just put our first names.

I have rung Pegasus this evening -saturday and have stated that we will fly on monday evening. They said that they will not let us board unless we send photocopies of our passports through the contact us section on their website. We have done so.

I have been scanning through the net and have seen that they take about two weeks to reply, so I called the call centre again who informed that if I haven't received a response within 24 hours then to call again.

Ok problem now is that you have only untill 24 hours before your flight to make any changes and the time to call is 19 hours before our flight.

I read online that a man was refused boarding as he had done this.

Has anyone else encountered anything like this with Pegasus?

Has anyone else been through this wth Pegasus? I'm aware that many airlines are that bothered.

Many thanks

Re: I didn't use our middle names on our Pegasus booking can we still fly?

I would be surprised if you could not fly as it is not mandatory with airlines to put your middle name. It is generally more of a problem when people who are known by their middle name forget to book under the first name as per passport. I have been in travel 40 years and rarely do we put both names. Certainly it is not a problem with Turkish airlines so why Pegasus should be any different I do not understand . It is quite clear on your passport which you will present at the airport so I would just check in as normal and not even worry. You have sent them a copy of the passport as requested. I recently travelled and my title showed Mr instead of Mrs and no one ever commented. When you check in the agent will be looking at surname and first name so I think you worry unecessary.
Have a good flight .

Re: I didn't use our middle names on our Pegasus booking can we still fly?

I flew with Pegasus to the UK in August and I also forgot to add my middle name to the booking. I didn't contact Pegasus once I noticed my error because my husband (in the usual Turkish attitude) said "Don't worry about it" and he was right.
I boarded with no problems - they didn't comment on it at all.

Re: I didn't use our middle names on our Pegasus booking can we still fly?

Thank you Charlotte and Sezay,

It's a horrible feeling, I am usually uber careful about these things. I'm travelling with a four year old and an eight year old alone, to Dalaman via Istanbul. Usually we fly directly to Dalaman but we have moved abroad now so there aren't any direct flights .

My husband is also Turkish - married 12 years today!! He's got the same attitude that there won't be any problem too!!

I'm a bit stressed because we only have 1 hour and 15 mintutes to get across the airport but as all is with the same airline I know that if we miss the connection then they have to put us on the next availiable flight!!

We just wanted our girls to spend two weeks with their Grandparents, what a palava!!

Apparently I have to go through passport control etc twice to get connecting flights. So we have our e visas sorted as well.

It will be worth it all when we are lying on the beach in Oludeniz ;-)

You will be ok. Enjoy you trip

I didn't like to mention this before but I am a bit of a sooth sayer and can tell the future. You madam will have no probs, a good enjoyable trip but sadly will eat and drink too much but that's the only downside.

Ha ha! Thank you Philip, I'm so glad I thought to come onto here for advice. Sometimes it's easy to get yourself really worked up isn't it?

I'll remember your prediction........

I've flown with Pegasus many times. I've never given them my middle name, despite it being on my passport.

Never had a problem.

Flown with Pegasus, Turkish Airlines and Easyjet many times and never used my middle name and never been stopped.
A quick look on Google shows dozens of airlines who all say the middle name is not mandatory on your booking.

A frequent flyer site states:

On a scheduled flight booking, all that is required is the passenger's first forename and surname, as they appear on the passport. If you have entered middle names as well, these will appear on your ticket as one word, since the airlines do not permit spaces or punctuation marks in the names.
