What happens if my name appears differently on the passport as it appears on the ticket?
If the name change were due to Marriage, you would need a copy of the marriage certificate with other proof of citizenship (birth certificate, voter's card, driving license etc.) If the name change is due to adoption or legal name change (deed poll) you would need a certified copy of the legal document showing the name change with other proof of citizenship. If you do not have a legal document, you would need a parent or other relative that knew of the name change to have an affidavit sworn to that fact.
