Canadian sues Sunwing Airlines because he was given sparkling wine instead of champagne
A cheapskate airline allegedly promoted a “champagne service” and then bamboozled at least 1,600 customers by serving them cheap sparkling wine.
Quebec based Daniel Macduff, the BBC report, has launched a class action against Sunwing Airlines after he booked a holiday to Cuba that advertised “a complimentary on-board champagne toast” but only was given cheap sparkling wine instead.
Of the legal suit, Sébastien Paquette, a lawyer for Macduff, commented: “It’s not about the pettiness of champagne versus sparkling wine. It’s the consumer message behind it.”
Whilst Sunwing denounce the case brought against them as “frivolous and without merit,” Guest of a Guest’s Stephanie Maida concluded: “Champagne is a basic human right… The gall.” Pass the bubbles.
