Turkish Airlines - Boarding Pass

I was curious on those who have flown Turkish Airlines. Does the airline for your boarding pass put your Middle Name or Initial on the Boarding Pass? Or do they simply put your First and Last Name on it only?

Can anyone confirm this of those who have flown with Turkish Airlines recently?

Family name plus surname cutted at 5 characters (on the small part).

But when the site is a bit confusing I usually follow passport name order, so last and first...

Is there a confirmation number on the pass? I can't seem to find it.

Hello, this is semi-related. I booked a Turkish Airlines flight for an American friend from Istanbul to Nevsehir (in Cappadocia), and I wrote 'Chris' as his first name, instead of 'Christopher', which is on his passport. Do you think he will have trouble because they are not identical? I don't know how strict Turkey/Turkish Airlines is on this, especially for Americans. Do you think I need to book him a different flight (because they won't allow a name change)? Thanks!

Hi

This is not a name change but it could cause problems for him, so telephone Turkish Airlines and explain the problem, they might even sort it for free, as long as you booked direct with the airline, if you used an online travel agent it will be a whole different story.
