(CNN) — Calling all Elizabeth Gallaghers in Canada: Would you like a free trip around the world?

Toronto resident Jordan Axani, 28, is looking for a woman with the same name as his ex-girlfriend to take a couple of airline tickets off his hands. Axani posted on Reddit that he booked this “fairly wicked” trip in March when he and the original Elizabeth Gallagher were still together.

After they broke up, he didn’t want the tickets to go to waste.

“Anyone familiar with with the archaic system that is modern air travel will know that a name change on a ticket is damn near impossible,” he wrote on the site.

If you’re lucky enough to be Canadian and have the name Elizabeth Gallagher, here is your itinerary:

December 21: NYC to Milan

December 28: Prague to Paris

December 29: Paris to Bangkok

January 7: Bangkok to New Dehli

January 8: New Dehli to Toronto

Oh, and if you want to stay a few extra days in India, that’s an option too, Axani says.

“I am not looking for anything in return. I am not looking for companionship, romance, drugs, a trade, or to take selfies with you in front the Christmas Market in Prague,” he wrote.

“If you feel compelled to toss me a couple hundred bucks, great. Really the only thing I ask for is that you enjoy this trip and that it bring you happiness.”

Better hurry, though. Axani recently posted an update on Reddit saying many Elizabeth Gallaghers have reached out to him. No word on how he’s going to make the final selection. There’s probably not enough time before the trip to do it “Survivor” style.

Stay tuned on whether or not it’s actually possible for Axani to give his tickets away to someone with the same name. CNN is reaching out to several airlines and TSA to find out.

    Under the circumstances, I’d say it speaks volumes aboutthis mans character, and his ex is definitely at a loss. That being said, the outrageous rules and guidelines the airlines are permited to hold in regards to ticket purchase and air travel is another example of bullying, forcing you to commit to specific time, schedule, and expences without any flexibility or alternative.
    To see a large amount of money, travel opportunity, or option of companionship literallly go into thin air due to a simple change of occupant, is just a way of abusing an industry they controll, and is in result, the fault for their own company nose dive.
    I hope this situation raises more awareness to the terrorism that is taking over our skies, robbing us of family trips, vacations, and opportunities to travel abroad, we are hostages to these tyrants, and I’m glad someone has finally spoken up!
    *also, you could put all kinds of spins on this, legally, morally, civilly, could be very interesting…..could also be easily resolved.
