We prove that the noncrossing partition lattices associated with the complex reflection groups G(d, d, n) for d, n ≥ 2 admit a decomposition into saturated chains that are symmetric about the middle ranks. A consequence of this result is that these lattices have the strong Sperner property, which asserts that the cardinality of the union of the k largest antichains does not exceed the sum of the k largest ranks for all k ≤ n. Subsequently, we use a computer to complete the proof that any noncrossing partition lattice associated with a well-generated complex reflection group is strongly Sperner, thus affirmatively answering a special case of a question of D. Armstrong. This was previously established only for the Coxeter groups of type A and B.
