name correction on malaysian air ticket

Hello everyone, I am traveling with my family to Singapore. My mom name doesn't have the surname in the passport by I have put the surname on the ticket. The malaysian airline is telling the only cleartrip has authority to change the name and cleartrip is telling they don’t have authority. If only I have booked directly with Malaysian airline this was so much better.

What is best way to go ahead? should I take risk travelling without changing the name?

What do you mean "risk travelling without name change"? What happens if your mother is refused boarding? Best to do as the airline suggests.

Hi,

Some of cases airline will charge some amount and amend the surname. Request to airlines they will defiantly help you.

No need to take any risk.

Regards,
