Teen in England changes name to avoid paying airline fee

How far would you go to avoid an airline fee? One student changed his name because it was cheaper than paying to correct a booking error, The Guardian reports.

On Facebook, the 19-year-old from England has his name as Adam West, and that's the name his girlfriend's stepfather used to buy the teen's plane ticket. The problem is, his real name is Adam Armstrong.

So to avoid paying Ryanair's $336 fee to change the name, the teen used deed poll, a UK service to change his name for free and rushed a new passport costing about $150.
