turkish airlines: u.s citizen


I recently booked a trip on turkish airlines from JFK to Tel Aviv with a 9 hour stop over in Istanbul. However, when I was booking my flight on the Turkish Airlines website it only had a place for my First and Last Name so I did not include my middle name which is on my passport. Will this be a problem? I do not want to have any problem in the Israeli Airport/Turkish Airport because of my middle name. My ticket is not able to be refunded or changed. Turkish airlines customer service is basically non existent. Any suggestions?

Not a problem if your middle name isn't on your ticket.

I have never had an airline ticket that included my middle name.
