I bought three tickets for a trip to Europe from Canada (leaving 7 weeks from now), and only realized after the fact that I had typed one person's name as "Doug" yet his passport says "Douglas". Because I used FlightHub, the airlines themselves claim to be unable to do a name change, and that I need to go through FlightHub.
I've read FlightHub's policy and they claim that they will try to assist but there is no guarantee they can, or that they will be able to refund the tickets so I can repurchase them.
I will be calling them when they open in the morning but I want to ask if anyone here has ever made this same mistake and been allowed through to their flights. I really do not want to have to book another $1200 ticket if I can avoid it, which I'm sure you can appreciate!
Doug is absolutely unambiguously the diminutive of Douglas so I'm hoping that if we can't get the name changed on the ticket, that he will still be able to board. I did not write "Douh" or "Doig" so in my opinion shouldn't lead to confusion, but I am aware of the policies stated about ticket names matching passport names.
Anyone able to reassure me or am I pretty much screwed?
