Booking shows my son as a Ms and not a Mr

Have checked my booking and found that my son is shown as a Ms and not a Mr.

Will this be a problem , I looked at changing it on line and guess what its would cost me £150 !!

Do I need to pay this rip off fee to change his title ? ,

it also shows on the airline as he is a female ?

Can any one give me some advise ?

I'm expecting to be told "sorry sir but it will cost " but looking at the passport the title is not on there

Any advise would be appreciated !!

Not an issue - titles are not important, all that matters is the first/last name on the ticket match his passport.

One of the most asked questions on the forum. Titles do not matter. Never have done, never will do.

No. Think about it, how would they check even if they cared? ( Which they dont.)

If its Ryanair and *you* care give them a call and they will sort it.

Whew - so glad that so many weighted in, as I feared your son would need to undergo surgery, prior to the trip.

Over the years, twice my wife has gotten listed as "Mr," when she is clearly not. No issue.

Now, just to be safe, perhaps your son should wear a wig, and a dress... [Grin]

Fly safely,

No problem with TSA or anyone else if the name is otherwise the same.
