It was cheaper for Adam Armstrong to legally change his name than it was to pay the airline fee.
HOLY PREPOSTEROUS FEES, BATMAN!
Adam Armstrong from Manchester, England was excited to go on a trip with his girlfriend to Ibiza, Spain. His girlfriend’s stepfather purchased the couple tickets. The oroblem? He used the name Adam listed on his Facebook page: Adam West.You know, the same Adam West from the campy 1960s Batman television series. Yeah, THAT Adam West.
Adam noticed the error a few days later and tried to fix it with the airline, Ryanair. The airline has a strict 24-hour grace period for booking errors.
We showed them we were not trying to change the person, just the name, but they wouldn’t back down […] All they needed to do was hit the backspace key on a keyboard and they want to charge me £220 ($336).
