It will be fine. Tickets are often missing spaces. My tickets usually read BLOGGS/MRNICK.

Booking systems (just like domain names and email addresses) don't support spaces

They always leave out the hyphen in my surname and often leave off the last few letters. As long as the letters that are there are in the right order and match the passport I am using, I have never had a problem.
