My if statement is not working as intended

My entire if statement line won't run when I enter "y" into the console.


tickets_remaining = 100
while tickets_remaining : print("There are {} tickets remaining".format(tickets_remaining))

name = input("What is your name? ")

number_of_tickets = input("Hi {}, how many tickets do you want to buy? ".format(name))
number_of_tickets = int(number_of_tickets)

total = number_of_tickets * TICKET_PRICE
print("Your total due is ${}!!".format(total))

Comfirmation = input("Do you want to proceed? Y/N    ") 

if Comfirmation.lower == "y":
    tickets_remaining -= number_of_tickets
    print("Thank you anyways {}".format(name))

print("Sorry :(, we are all out of tickets!!")
