I booked a flight from HCM City to Manchester on 25/09/2015, using Etihad Airways. The input the last name as first name in wrong order. My first name: Hoang, last name: Pham, but while booking, I enter my first name as Pham and last name as: Hoang.

Will the airport agents accept the wrong order of first name and last name, or I have to issue a name change to the airways?

    since you have lots of time isn't it better to first try to see how much it costs to change the name on the ticket? I don't know if you can do it through "Manage your booking" or if you have to phone in at their office (and if fees apply).

    It is also possible that you will be able to get it done for free, if you convince them that you are not transferring the ticket; just fixing the name.
