I'm going on my first ever trip overseas from Australia to the US next week and just had a few questions to ask.
First of all I just wanted to ask a question regarding how the airlines have listed my name. Assuming my name is John Smith for instance, the airlines have my name listed as exactly this ''SMITH johnmr''. Now shouldn't they have it listed as Mr John Smith? I know this is probably just the normal way the airlines list names, but just wanted to make sure this is the case as I know my name has to exactly match my passport.
Also, I am flying domestically within the US. My first flight within America, is from LA to Memphis. This flight then connects in Atlanta. I was just wondering how this works with my baggage? At Atlanta do I collect it from baggage collection and re-check it in for the Memphis flight, or will they do this for me?
Finally, since I'm from Australia and flying domestically within the US, do I just need to present my passport at check-in for identification, or is there anymore documents I need to provide?
Sorry if I seem a little clueless, it's just this is my first time travelling overseas so I'm not an experienced traveller.
