    As it is part of the surname, you need to call them. It should only cost you £7 to change it x

    Firstly, you were not flying with Ryanair.

    Secondly, had your ticket been checked and found to be incorrect, it is possible that you would have been charged an admin fee much higher than £7, plus the difference in cost between what you paid originally and a new ticket.

    It is up to the OP if they wish to take the risk (taking into account that Ryanair tickets on the day of travel are very very expensive).

    You are allowed up to 3 letters that are incorrect.

    You could always call them up to check.

    I arranged a last minute club 18-30’s holiday for me and 6 of my mates earlier this year through Thomas Cook. They accidentally put Ms instead of Mr on two of the ticket names. I rang them up when I received the tickets to let them know the mistake, however they instantly tried to pass the blame onto me and said I would have to pay a £25 each way admin fee if I was at fault. They record all there phone calls, so luckily when they replayed the phone call they realised it was there mistake. Some of these companies really try it on with these fees though

    It doesn't matter if tickets say ms instead or mrs etc as passports don't have your title on anyway!!!

    I made that mistake last year when I booked a flight to Singapore on ebookers. My booking confirmation had me as a Ms rather than the correct Mr! Correcting that little mistake cost me a £35 amendment fee!!

    If you can check in online I'd be surprised if you were questioned at the gate, but if you have to check in at the desk I think it's a bit risky.

    In that case she has mis-informed you. There are quite strict rules relating to the spelling of pax names due to the security/immigration climate in which airlines operate today.

    However in the OP's case the chances are that you could pass through security checks 99 times out of 100 and it wouldn't be picked up by anyone, but it only takes the one eagle eyed immigration officer/check-in agent/security memeber to notice and it may spoil your day !!! £7 (if no change in flight cost) for peace of mind or.................?? The choice is yours.
