An Airline Served Him Sparkling Wine Instead of Champagne. So He Sued

A Canadian man has filed a lawsuit against Sunwing Airlines for serving him sparkling wine instead of the more upscale champagne he had been promised.
Daniel McDuff, of Quebec, filed a class action lawsuit alleging false advertising, the BBC reports. McDuff said the trip he booked advertised "champagne service" on board, but that he instead received sparkling wine on his flight to Cuba — and nothing on the way back.
Sunwing dubbed the lawsuit "frivolous and without merit," telling the BBC that the term "champagne service" was used in reference to the overall experience the company provided, rather than the specific beverage provided.
