Why Name Correction and Name Change Are Important on Your Airline Ticket

Correcting name-related errors is important because TSA rules require all names to appear exactly as they do on government-issued photo IDs, such as a driver’s license or passport. If the name on your ticket doesn’t match the name on your government-issued photo ID, you may not be allowed to board your flight.

  • I was needing to change a name on a plane ticket due to the person who is on the ticket is in quarantine due to covid and wont be allowed to go or be out for another 11 days. I tried calling but it rings 3 times and hangs up.

    Your company policy is unreasonable

    I tried to change the spelling of the ticket name from Danny to Daniel. And was told $298 fee would be charged to do so. Your website specifically states that “minor name changes may be made with no fee”. Yet I was told by two agents that was not accurate.
    1. Update your website
    2. Honor your website postings
    3. Change your policy because the simple request to adjust a name spelling on a $86 ticket with a $298 fee is absolutely gouging and terrible customer service.

    It is evident by these processes that you do not care about your customers and do not deserve positive recognition among air space travelers.

    Agree 100% we were told to purchase a new ticket in the proper name. My wife’s name is Cindy but her given name on ID is Lucinda. Allegiant foreign call center help was completely unintelligible and very rude they talked over me raised their voice. It’s the same person they didn’t seem to comprehend that.
