on ticket, an extra/double letter on the end of name ....

Great. Just booked flights for a long weekend to WDW using FF points.

While reviewing the ticket, I just saw there's an extra / double last letter on a first name.

What's the likelihood it will matter if its Alann vs Alan, or Megann vs Megan.

I know there's a change fee which I'd like to avoid. But should I still try to have it changed by asking very nicely since it's *just* a clerical change, or at least have them make a note on the reservation?

BTW, it's United.

Thanks.

Your fault? Their fault?

If they made a mistak, it will be easy.

If you made a mistake, you can still ask them.

Did you log into your United account online and used the site to make the rez ? if that is the case the account should have the proper name should it not. Is your middle initial the same as the last letter by any chance ?

Did you call United ? What did they say ? Just ask them.. by Just I mean ask them pretty soon :-)

OMG I must have had brain freeze last night since it's minus ridiculous here LOL

So the first names on our tickets DO end with the initial of our middle names, as in part of our first names. HUH? I have NEVER noticed this before. ??? Is it something new, or I just really didn't notice.

Also, when I logged into my united account, there's a place to edit traveler information. Who knew! since I've never had to do that either.

Thx guys :)
