Update spelling of name on ticket

New Arrival

My boyfriend booked tickets as a gift but spelt my middle name incorrectly. It's a simple typo on one letter. How can I correct this?

If you are enrolled in TSA PreCheck then it's worth a phone call to Southwest to get it corrected. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it unless you have some spare time to hang out on hold waiting for a Southwest phone agent. You may also be able to contact Southwest through Twitter (@SouthwestAir) and request help with the change.

Yeah you should be fine ! I sometimes have some extra names on my id compared to my ticket and it’s usually fine
