    Default Help..confused about names in air ticket booking online

    Hi,
    My name is typical chinese, eg: TAN AH KOW

    When I purchase tickets from airlines online, I am asked to fill in exactly as per passport (and cannot have space like AH KOW), and different airlines have different options:

    1)
    FIRST NAME: LAST NAME:
    2)
    FIRST NAME: LAST NAME (SURNAME):
    3)
    FIRST NAME: LASTNAME (FAMILY NAME):

    So my question is, do I fill in
    VARIANT 1
    1)
    FIRST NAME:TAN LAST NAME: AHKOW
    2)
    FIRST NAME:TAN LAST NAME (SURNAME):AHKOW
    3)
    FIRST NAME:TAN LASTNAME (FAMILY NAME):AHKOW

    OR
    VARIANT 2
    1)
    FIRST NAME:AHKOW LAST NAME: TAN
    2)
    FIRST NAME:AHKOW LAST NAME (SURNAME):TAN
    3)
    FIRST NAME:AHKOW LASTNAME (FAMILY NAME):TAN

    OR
    VARIANT 3
    1)
    FIRST NAME:TAN LAST NAME: KOW
    2)
    FIRST NAME:TAN LAST NAME (SURNAME):KOW
    3)
    FIRST NAME:TAN LASTNAME (FAMILY NAME):KOW

    OR
    VARIANT 4
    1)
    FIRST NAME:KOW LAST NAME: TAN
    2)
    FIRST NAME:KOW LAST NAME (SURNAME):TAN
    3)
    FIRST NAME:KOW LASTNAME (FAMILY NAME):TAN

    Just remember last name/family name means surname, that one would be Tan in your example. you can fill in as Ah Kow or Ahkow, they normally dont really bother.
