The ticket is in another person's name and you can't go because US airways won't change it to your name? Why wasn't the ticket issued in your name to begin with? If your name has legally changed since you purchased the ticket you can still travel by bringing the documentation for the name change such as the marriage certificate or divorce decree. Is this an international trip or domestic within the US?

More details needed please.

Write to US AIrways outlining your daughters disability needs and her need for a carer. Specify that you are requesting the airline make this accommodation asa result of your daughters disability. I am n sure the DDA applies in these circumstances, but you may get a more sympathetic hearing.

One other thing, in your request be polite. You are not entitled to a name change, it will be at the discretion of the airline. If you are aggressive, you might damage your chances.
