Who do you imagine that you are writing to? this is a public forum. Contact the airline you booked with.

How people find themselves on this forum and think they are writing to someone they booked with is beyond me!!

Dear mpraveen5193,

You will need to contact whoever sold you the flight ticket in the first instance, and respectfully request that they amend your surname on your booking so that it matches what is written in your passport.

Yours respectfully,

Are you sure you cannot personally make those changes for the OP? I hear you have a deal desk where you charge 100 Euro for fixing names and 200 Euro to help people with southwest.com bookings.

Dear Sir (OP AKA mpraveen5193)

have a wonderful flight, if you are allowed to get on board or perhaps even enter the Airport as they do check IDs at the entrance. You may be stuck there dear sir
