In case of a misspelling in a passenger's name, there is no need to panic. Airlines tolerate up to 3 typos in a passenger's first name/last name, as long as these typos do not make the name completely unrecognizable. This means that, even in case when there is a small error in the passenger's name, the ticket is still perfectly good to use and the airlines should accept the passenger to board the plane.

Airlines apply a maximum of three (3) typos policy, in order to anticipate for misspellings.
If there are up to 3 typos in the passenger name, the ticket is still OK to use and airlines should accept the passenger to board the plane. In case there are more than three (3) typos, then the ticket needs to be cancelled and re-booked using the correct passenger details.
