Hey guys,

Need a little advice. I booked mine and my mates easyjet tickets from inverness to london, to start our rtw trip. Only problem is i booked my mates under the wrong name. it should be JarrEtt but instead i put JarrAtt. Its only one letter but do u think they will notice. After all it is only easy jet.

Thanks folks

haha, Well it all depends.

I never flown with EasyJet, but the regulations are very clear, Correct name on Ticket, same as PassPort.

BUT, my ameturish guess is that they would say "OK", but warn you to next time, its just a letter flaw, and not another name or incorrect name, so i doubt they care.

But for safety, just send them a e-mail asking, you might have to buy a totally new one, who knows, better safe then sorry i always say.

I did this one for my Mum (Its OK I know her name now - who'd a thought - the same as mine) anyway, once i noticed this, I then brought a fully refundable ticket in her real name got to the check in desk with her on the cheap ticket I had got on line (Emirates Airlines) and they were fine, so then as soon as we arrived back into Dubai, I cashed in the other ticket! (I did call once we had checked in and cancelled the flight with her fully refundable ticket!) Monies were in the credit card again in 4 weeks!

I am an agent. and there has been times I've issued tickets with 1 or 2 letter off in the name and its never been a big issue . Call Easyjet and get them to make a note on the file. Shoulg not be an issue
