• Air Canada not French enough

    From Aviation HQ@2:292/854 to All on Mon Sep 2 13:16:10 2019
    Air Canada must apologize to a Canadian couple and pay compensation of approximately 14,000 Euro because the airline has not treated French and English equally. The Ottawa court decided this week.

    The Michel and Lynda Thibodeau couple had complained that English is too dominant on domestic Air Canada flights. On seat belts, for example, there is only the English word "Lift" and the signs for the emergency exits are only in English or the English words are larger than the French ones.

    In Canada both English and French are official languages and must be treated equally by law. According to the judge, Air Canada has failed in this. The airline will now adjust the signage.
