OK, I tried search TOBB and this one for over an hour, sorry if it's under my nose. I was told by a LH agent at the main US CS number that I would be denied boarding in FRA, because my name shows up in the LH system as "Jane A Doe", while my passport has a middle name on it. I booked an itin SFO-FCO on united.com, SFO-FRA on UA, connecting to FRA-FCO on LH. Return is FCO-FRA on LH, connecting to FRA-SFO on UA. Ticket begins with "016" issued by UA. I got one record locator for the ticket with all 4 flights, and another record locator for the LH flights. All of this was expected, based upon similar itins flown in the past few years. I am a US citizen, UA FF member, enrolled in global Entry, and I have used GE and TSA precheck successfully several times going back to 2012. My name is "Jane Annabel Doe" on everything, including my passport. My GE known traveler number, passport number, are saved into my UA FF profile. My UA FF name is "Jane Annabel Doe" as well. My name shows up on LH website when I retrieved my booking recently, as "Janeadr Doe", which is what it looks like on my UA boarding passes as of late. "Dr" is my title on UA FF account. My known traveler number is in the LH reservation when I view it online, but my passport number and first, middle and last names aren't visible. I get an error instructing me to call the LH service number (main US number) when I try to add my correct names and passport number, issuing country, etc. to the reservation. SO, I called and a not super-concerned agent told me that I would be denied boarding in FRA, because my name appears in the LH system as "Jane A Doe". A call to the UA 1K desk resulted in an agent not willing to tell me I'd be OK, but she did disappear for 10 minutes, and said that she talked with about 4 other agents, who had never heard of this being a problem. She said that she would have to cancel and rebook my ticket under a different name if I was worried about it, but the fares have gone up substantially. Does anyone think that I have a high chance of being denied boarding either FRA-FCO or FCO-FRA? Related: how about BP's for LH flights? Would I need to re-check in at FRA for the FRA-FCO flight or get to FCO early to argue with the agent because they won't want to give me a BP?
