You should have no problem, I did the same for New York and it was fine.

My advice is tweet the Aer Lingus account to ask. I reckon you'll be fine.

No bother, bring a driving license if worried.

His passport has only the one name, yeah? even if you were right, there may be an issue and the issue may be on the Spanish side coming back. There are 2/3 serious checks on your passport/ticket in Barcelona leaving the country.

Jimmy, this happened me before and AL did a complimentary name change - seemed like this is their standard way of dealing with it. Sort it before you go.

I live in Spain and my passport has two names. I always book my tickets using one name and surname and I've never had any problems leaving Spain or coming back. Once ypur photo is ok you have no problems.
