    Wrong title on flight booking 15th Apr 18 at 7:31 PM
    Have just realised I've said I am "Master" rather than "Mrs" on a online flight booking with Flybe.

    Given that it's just a UK internal flight where no-one even looks at the boarding pass until boarding, I'm inclined to take the chance rather than call Flybe and risk being charged a fortune for a name change. Opinions please?

    So long as you booked directly with them they'll correct mistakes for free:

    The title on the booking makes no difference. Presumably however you booked an adult fare and not a child fare (as master skibunny40).

    On a similar matter ...

    Just printed out our boarding cards for an EJ flight this weekend and notice that my wife is down as Mr .... B
    Her first name is quite 'gender specific' (is that the right phrase?)

    Should I be worried?

    According to the website you can make changes yourself for free:
    http://www.easyjet.com/en/help/booking-and-check-in/managing-!!!!!!!!!!ing

    Though probably not now that you've checked-in.

    I doubt it will be a problem, passports don't have titles so the name on the boarding pass will match the passport. I would try to get it changed though rather than run the risk of an over-zealous agent or security person causing problems.

    Just thinking this one through (we are regular travellers on this route)

    I'm just wondering if there has ever been a time when both ticket and boarding card are presented together, as we only have hand luggage.

    EDIT - but, then again ... as it's free ..... job done.

    Thanks for the link which strangely, didn't work!

    Passports and boarding passes will be checked at the gate.

    Titles don't matter so you have nothing to worry about.

    Any hassle just say you're trans and accuse them of transphobia
