I just booked a flight ticket on AirAsia for my friend and filled out the wrong gender carelessly. Is it a problem?

I didn't find their customer service phone numbers on AirAsia.

    You can contact AirAsia through their Facebook page and ask them for help with it. They are very responsive – Super Savta Sep 22 '16 at 7:18

    When flying Heathrow-Helsinki the airline decided my Mum "Jean" must be a man. Nobody batted an eyelid. They probably didn't even check it. – RedSonja Sep 22 '16 at 8:48

    @RedSonja It doesn't mean your mum wouldn't have any problems if they did check. – Dmitry Grigoryev Sep 22 '16 at 9:31

    I know that the comments about trans/gender identity are jokes, but in all seriousness if you did this it would likely cause more problems for you. It does somewhat depend on where you are traveling. – called2voyage Sep 22 '16 at 14:08

You can change it for free

According to this tweet exchange the airline has no problem changing the title on tickets (March 2016).

I faced gender problem at the time of web checkin at AirAsia flight, it was showing male, after talking to customer care this was solved. They said it's system error could be fixed online & gender was updated correct. Hope some of u got their solution.

No, it's not a problem, and you don't have to change it. I've flown on European flights a couple of times with the wrong gender selected for my travel partner and not one airline bat an eye. If you search on Flyertalk you will find other reports confirming the same. Likewise airlines don't care if your passport number or date of birth is invalid when entered during online check-in.

Just make sure the name is correct and you're good to go.
