pacific airline booking stuff-up

Posted by macman1945 on 12/4/2008 at 06:38

After reading the forum I think I've made a big mistake. I failed to enter middle names of passengers for flight from h.m.c to haiphong. Can anybody tell what I can do to rectify this please.

Contact the Pacific Airlines office nearest you < http://www.pacificairlines.com.vn/ContactInfo.aspx >.

However, it might not be so serious as air tickets usually include Title/Surname/First Given so there is a good chance it won't matter.

If you paid by credit card this should assist you.

BTW, Pacific Airlines and its fuel supplier in VN have had a few disagreements over price and delays of 10-15 minutes have been experienced.

Apart from this, you should be happy with your choice of carrier.

Thank you catba for your reply.

It was your entry in the vn forum that alerted me to getting passengers name exactly as in passport (alas too late).

Have tried e-mailing pacific at sales but no response. My concern is that there is only one flight a day and if we dont get on the plane because of this our ongoing bookings will suffer. Do you suggest ringing office in hmc (from australia) as I really need to sort it out?.

I will call Pacific Airlines for you - it is 05.40H Sunday as I write this - later today and will post their reply.

I suggest you print out whatever you have and retain it for your check-in. Given the fact airlines are opening their systems to allow direct reservations they often show lenience.

They seem to get hung-up o incorrect sex, though, Mr/Mrs/Ms!

Thank you very much for your assistance catba. You have no idea how much worry this has caused. Do you live on catba island? We are heading there on 4/6 and I would like to express my appreciation for your help.

I contacted the local PA office and they said as long as you didn't use short names, i.e. Tom instead of Thomas or Liz instead of Elizabeth, you should have no problems.

They confirmed carrying the credit card used to purchase tickets will also help.

Main e-m contact is < support@pacificairlines.com.vn >.

Now I hope you can rest easy.

MacMan:
In response to your question about residence: I actually have a house and business in the Central Highlands but travel too frequently.

I spent a month in an inflatable with my wife and daughter in Ha long Bay and liked the rugged part of Cat Ba Island.
