Well we (my friend and I) had a problem similar to this one, but we realised it right at the check ins, two hours before the take-off. After an hour of explaining and showing the ID and telling the man at the check ins that we were really tired when we booked the ticket and we made a mistake spelling the name, he finally let us through. I think it's just a matter of how understanding is the person. I don't think there is anything you can do, besides re booking. We were just lucky I guess.
