Can’t sue airline for screwing up drink order in French, top court rules

OTTAWA – The Supreme Court says a couple on a Toronto-bound Air Canada flight from Charlotte, North Carolina who ordered a 7-Up in French from a flight attendant and instead received a Sprite cannot sue the airline for violating Canada’s language laws.

Instead of the $6,000 they were each awarded by the Federal Court, Michel Thibodeau and Lynda Thibodeau will have to settle for an apology from the airline, the top court ruled Tuesday.
