Etihad - middle initial instead of middle name on tickets

Yesterday I booked a return ticket from Manchester to Phuket via Abu Dhabi. I am 95% certain that I put my full middle name into the online booking form. However, only my middle initial has come out on the ticket. Is this normal for Etihad?

My passport shows my full middle name.

Thanks

Cant say if it's normal for Etihad but it wont be an issue as middle names are not important - as long as the First/Last Name on the ticket match those on your passport then you'll be fine.

All my flights booked by my company have my middle initial only on the ticket. It has never been a problem, anywhere I've flown. As long as your first name and last name (exactly) match you passport you should be fine.

Don't worry you don't need your middle name on the ticket.

Middle name isn't a problem, they're on my passport but have never added them to my ticket.
