According to the latest and updated Spirit Airlines name change policy, customers are allowed to edit the spelling of travelers on Spirit flight tickets. Only one thing is important to keep in mind while registering a name change request. The pronunciation of the name should not be completely changed after making the changes in the name. Let’s understand it with an example. Suppose the registered name on the ticket is “Alberet Jones” which is incorrect. And the correct name is “Albert Jones”. It means, only the “e” character has to be changed. Without “e” the starting and ending pronunciation remains the same. Such kind of changes you can make on Spirit Airlines.
