Changing last name after ticket purchase

New Arrival

I am flying to Punta Cana in November, my husband purchased our tickets last night, however he put my maiden name.  How do I change the name on my ticket to match my passport?

 

Thank you.

I believe you can just call southwest customer service and they should be able to fix it. I don’t think you can do this online

If you can't do that, remember that you can cancel any ticket within 24 hours of purchasing the ticket (be sure to ask for a refund as opposed to having the funds becomming travel funds for future use). Then you can buy the ticket again using the correct name.

 

That assumes you didn't use travel funds to buy at least part of the fare on the new ticket.
