Help: one of my given names was joined with my last name on the ticket

Hey everyone! I bought a ticket from Brazil (GRU) to Chicago (ORD), operated by Aeromexico. I bought it through an agency, and just noticed that one of my given names is joined with my last name. For example, my given name is Jessica May on my passport, and Smith is my last name. On the ticket it says MAYSMITH. Will I have a problem to board? Agency people said it was fine but Iím afraid this will be an issue, specially to board my second flight from Mexico City to Chicago. Thank you!

Welcome to FlyerTalk!

Virtually all of my tickets on one major airline have my first and second given names combined. In 100s of flights, domestic and international, it has never caused a problem.

Agreed. Except that's not what the OP is saying!

"my given name is Jessica May on my passport, and Smith is my last name. On the ticket it says MAYSMITH"

So it's the middle name and the surname that have been combined. In my experience, this WILL be a problem and should be fixed in advanced. Most check-in systems will allow the first name to be modified to handle things like middle name/initial be combined to the first name, but not the surname...
