Used Wrong Name on Ticket

New Arrival

My legal name is "Tamara" but I never go by it, so of course I used "Tami" when I purchased my ticket.  Will this be a problem when going through security.  If it is going to be a problem am I able to get this changed prior to my flight?

You never know. I would call on the phone 1-800-435-9792 to see if they would change it.  You can actually fly with out an ID but the process could take a while.
