Name change, aka “Name Correction” with airlines, is associated with certain difficulties and costs. Often they ask for a certain amount of money to change the name, some do not even allow you to change the name or surname.
What are the policies of the various major airlines regarding this?
QATAR AIRWAYS – The Qatar Airways policy states that, in general, Qatar Airways does not allow us to change our name, for several reasons.
