    This may sound kind of silly, as well as coming from an ignorant American, but why on earth would they expect anyone to speak French in ATLANTA????? :confused:

    Unfortunately AC is saddled with archaic requirements to be and provide bilingual services ... this couple is simply taking advantage of this ... I hope they get middle seats in future :rolleyes:

    That was my suspicion as well, but I didn't want to come right out and say it, as I don't follow the English/French language debate in Canada all that closely.

    So if I fly Air Canada, I can insist on being spoken to in French? And demand compensation if the agent/FA doesn't speak French?

    Anyone know how to say "I'd like a 7-Up with no ice, please"?

    "J'aimerais cinq cent mille dollars s'il vous plaît."

    They sought $500K, were awarded $12K but now will only get $3K. Chances are the only ones making anything are the lawyers. :D
