Incorrect date of birth on flight ticket

Heeeey!

I booked a flight with American Airlines from BCN to JFK and I just saw that i provided my date of birth incorrectly. (wrong month only). I called them, and they said it is changed now. Few hours after, i checked on the internet, but my flight appeared still with the wrong date of birth. What should i do?

Or maybe it takes longer until its updated on the web?

Your date of birth does not appear on your ticket.

Yes, i know that, but i am concerned of security control, while entering the US. You know the secure flight passenger data and stuff like this.

Hi

It's not your fault, people in the US must get this all the time, they put the month in the wrong place to confuse the rest of the world.

Can't you update it yourself on their website?

I doubt this will be a problem. I'm surprised American asks for this on their website when booking. If it's for API purposes that information is logged at check in when you supply your passport information.

I doubt it will be a problem. But for peace of mind you could call them and ask (a) what is your date of birth in their system, and (b) is there a note in your reservation regarding your DOB?

Reassure then that you're not asking those questions to wind them up, just to check that your previous inquiry has been addressed.

Thanks for the suggestions. After all, it did take a while until they changed, but finally it has been done.

What if someone bought an international ticket for me, and there is a wrong date of birth - the year? Day and month is correct
