Chinese Last Name and First Name Ryanair

Hey, I recently booked a flight ticket from Ryanair.

And my chinese name is 'Lee Yuan Han' on my passport.

Lee is my Last Name(Family Name) and Yuan Han is my given name.

However, the name appeared is "Yuan Han Lee'

May I know am I still eligible to be on board since it is different with the name on my passport.

I would appreciate your reply.

Names often get swapped round on tickets, I wouldn't worry.

If that's what appeared on the boarding pass then, according to the airlines it's correct, since in English speaking countries the given name is first followed by the family name.

You'll have no problems. Enjoy your flight.
