Default Uk passport query

A friend of mine is coming over from the UK next Wednesday..her son booked her ticket, but he booked it in her married name, and she is now divorced. Emirates won't let her fly because her passport is in a different name now. Can she get an emergency passport issued and is there an easy way to do it! Or any other solution.
Thanks xxx

She can't change the ticket name so she wants to change her passport name?! Bit drastic.... Any how, passports can be issued on a premium service but you have to get an appointment, go to passport office, pay a premium etc and I'm still not sure it'd be quick enough. I'm even less sure it's legal to pretend you're married on a government issued legal document when you're not. Here's the link anyway but I think she'll have to bite the bullett and pay again or not go at all...

Errrr... she isn't pretending that she is married..her son thought that she still had her passport in her married name... she had changed it back to her Maiden name after the divorce..but thanks for your help.
Maybe somebody has a contact at Emirates that we can talk to and explain the situation and get the ticket changed to her proper name.

i doubt they will issue an emergency passport for that reason... it has to be a real emergency and even when peoples passports have run out they will not give you an EM passport. i suspect she will have to go to a passport office and get a new passport and change the flight etc.

They won't issue a ETD in the 'wrong' name because that's what her flight was booked under. Best to contact Emirates and pay whatever extra fee they would want to change the name on the ticket.

Passport and divorce decree should do the trick. Marriage license does the trick on the other foot when you get married and don't change the name on the passport, so might be worth a punt?

Only two options I can think of, but I think both have been covered
1 - change the name on the flight ticket, if the ticket allows. Some are non-refundable / non - transferable. Depends on the ticket 'band'. Usually, the cheapest ticket types will not allow any changes once issued.
2 - Buy a new ticket in her new name
