Student legally changes name because it was cheaper than changing Ryanair booking

Student legally changes name because it was cheaper than changing Ryanair booking

WE’VE ALL HAD a Ryanair experience, but this student’s ordeal might just take the biscuit.
The Sun reports that Adam Armstrong, 19, was due to go on holidays with his girlfriend to Ibiza next week. His girlfriend’s stepfather booked flights with Ryanair and accidentally booked Adam’s ticket under the wrong name.
You see, Armstrong’s name on Facebook had been Adam West, in an homage to the Batman actor, which his girlfriend’s stepfather saw and assumed was his real name.
Once he became aware of the error, Armstrong attempted to change his name on the ticket, but was informed by Ryanair that it would cost him £220 to do so.
And so, he did what any rational person would do and changed his name by deed poll.
After changing his name to Adam West for free, he paid £103 for a new passport and he was sorted, meaning that changing your actual name is cheaper than amending a Ryanair booking...
