I have booked my tickets with Air China, China Eastern Air and Cathay Pacific to various destination under my chinese name "M K L". But then my passport got damaged and I had to apply for a new one under my new name "Sally M K L". I've called expedia and the airlines, and all the reps have been advising me to change the names on the tickets. But the fee is like $100 and one of the flight tickets could not changed, and i would have to forfeit the ticket and purchase another one at $250. However, when I called again, another rep told me that I should have no problem checking in as long as I bring my legal change of name certificate. What should I do? Have anyone had this problem before?
Please advise! Much appreciated!
