At the end of the day, you book non-refundable travel far off into the future. And then mistake or not, life intervenes.
Jordan Axani booked one of the Milan – Asia mistake deals and then he and his girlfriend broke up.
Her name was Elizabeth Gallagher and now he’s looking for someone else named Elizabeth Gallagher to travel with. Because the name on the ticket can’t be changed.
I know how it sounds. But Jordan Axani, 27, is really in a bind. Last March, the Torontonian planned an extensive around-the-world trip with his girlfriend, a vegan baker named Liz Gallagher. Then the two broke up. And in a twist straight out of next winter’s big Christmas romcom, he can’t change the name on any of the tickets, so anyone using them would have to have a Canadian passport and the same name as his ex. He’s not asking potential Lizes to stay with him, or even sightsee together, although he “will buy the first round of vino at JFK upon departure.” Traveling Gallaghers would merely be following the same itinerary–the only place they’d be guaranteed to see Axani would be on flights between destinations.
This has now become an online thing, searching for Elizabeth Gallagher.
She doesn’t actually have to have a Canadian passport — passport details can certainly be changed on a reservation! I’d even suggest that a close spelling will do — an ‘s’ in Elisabeth, just one ‘l’ in Galagher should work.
So if your name is Elizabeth Gallagher, or if you want to play the part in the made for TV movie, there’s a frequent flyer (and member of the frequent flyer community) who would like to meet you.
