First Solo Trip. Concerned about Online Checkin

First Solo Trip. Concerned about Online Checkin

Good morning,

I am making my first solo international trip this Saturday and have a different flight next week around Christmas. I keep getting e-mails from AirAsia about doing online checkin for my flight from HKG to Bangkok. SHould I do this online checkin? I am concerned about it because my name appears to be backwards on my itinerary. I also have never done anything like this before.

Please help me.

Thank you.

If you are concerned that your name is wrong, I would contact Air Asia and make sure you will be allowed to travel or make the name change if that is needed. I would not wait to do this at the airport.

Did you book your own ticket or have a travel agent do it for you? In the past when I have used a travel agent they have wanted to see my passport to ensure that the details entered match correctly. I have feeling then that the itinerary prints as DOEJANE/MS, or similar, is that what you mean by 'backwards'?

I agree with btgm above, even if just for your own peace of mind, give AirAsia a call and confirm that it's all OK. Better to find out now than at the airport.
