mistake on surnames

New Arrival
  1. Hi, I have just bought the flight to Oakland from Los Angeles for me and my family. When I have written the names I have mistaken the middle name with my first surname because in Spain we have two surnames. So for example my name is Susana and my surnames are Martinez Golvano but I have written Martinez in middle name and Golvano in second name. So in the ticket put Golvano/Susana Martinez.
    Please, can you help me???. Could we fly without problems?? Could you change the tickets to the corrects names an surnames??
