Jet passengers charged over Â£100 to correct typos on tickets20 May 2011
Passengers are being charged more than Â£100 to correct simple spelling mistakes on plane tickets.
New research shows even a small typing error in someone’s name will incur a hefty extra charge.
Monarch and easyJet both charge a flat fee of Â£100 per person per ticket for a name change.Â But it could cost people even more for a mistake with bmibaby, easyJet, Jet2 or Flybe, says Which? Travel.
It’s the latest example of the rip-off surcharges imposed by airlines who are facing an Office of Fair Trading probe into complaints about debit and credit card fees.
