Delta Name Correction Policy – If you book your flight and notice when you read the confirmation email that your name is incorrect, you can contact Delta Name Correction and check if you can alter it. According to the Department of Transportation guidelines, tickets should have the same name as the passenger’s legal ID or documents. Thus, Delta Airlines allows its passengers to make minor corrections at a nominal fee as per Delta Name Correction Policy.

Delta Name Change Eligibility Criteria

Delta Airlines does not allow transferring the ownership of the ticket to anyone. If you want to make corrections to your name on the Delta ticket, you need to meet the following criteria:

  • Your ticket inventory should start from 006, and the flight should only be operated by Delta Airlines.
  • The airlines only process name change requests for Delta flight segments in case of interline or codeshare agreement flights.
  • You can reissue your Delta ticket only once for name correction purposes.
  • Apart from the name, Delta Airlines Name Change policy doesn’t allow any changes to the date of birth, origin/destination point, ticket date, class, or gender. However, you can make minor changes to the date of birth only in case of mistakes committed at the time of booking.
  • This policy permits only minor corrections of up to 3 characters.
  • You cannot correct your ticket twice. Airlines will reissue the ticket if the request is once processed and the ticket still needs changes.
