123 RF / kasto

A Canadian airline is in hot water for not being 'French' enough.

Air Canada has been forced to pay a French-speaking couple CDN$ 21,000 (AED 77,000) for breaching their linguistic rights.

They also have to write them a letter of apology.

The Ontario couple said that signs on a domestic flight were only in English and not in French.

Air Canada has promised to replace the signs after the couple filed more than 20 complaints in 2016.
