    If they noted down your passport number when you booked the tickets and/or use scanners at Departure, then you have a problem.

    But someone else can confirm it for sure.

    Contact the airline either way. It shouldn't cost you as you're not changing the name of the flyer but it depends on the carrier.

    Was it direct through etihad or something like STA Travels? If it's the latter, just call them up on the number found on their website.

    If through the eithad website: Try to enter the itinerary page and see if you can change details such as Passport Number. Alternatively contact them - http://www.etihadairways.com/sites/E...ContactUs.aspx

    It's better to be safe then sorry.

    Call them up, they'll just change the passport number associated with your ticket.

    I wouldn't risk leaving it until the day you travel.
