Really? Man Sues Airline For Serving Him 7Up Instead Of Sprite

Must read

An aggrieved passenger has filed a suit against an airline after a flight attendant who speaks only English language served him 7Up soft drink instead of the Sprite which he requested in French language.

Following the lawsuit, the government of Canada has revealed their intentions of possibly forcing all airlines to have a crew member aboard who can speak French.

Michael Thibodeau who is a fluent English speaker, said the employees of Air Canada were malicious, oppressive and reprehensible for not answering his questions in French during his flight.

The legal action has inspired parliament member, Stephane Dion to present a bill demanding that all flights from and to the country have a bilingual French speaker on board.

“Being able to order 7Up in French on a plane is a fundamental right and all Canadians should be able to sue the airlines if this is not the case,” Dion said.

According to World Wide Weird News, Thibodeau was initially awarded $12,250 in damages, but Air Canada appealed and the decision was overturned. Then he took his case to the Supreme Court, where the judges ruled that he was not entitled to receive a cash payout.

The airline was rather ordered to tender an apology to the offended passenger for the inconveniences their action caused him.
