Montreal — A Quebec judge has approved a class-action lawsuit against Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) on behalf of disabled people who had to pay extra for seats.
The suit covers both disabled individuals and those with a functional disability related to obesity who faced extra charges for seats adapted to their condition.
It is also filed on behalf of those who had to pay extra fees when acting as the attendant for a person with a disability.
The class action is specifically for people who traveled on a domestic flight from Dec. 5, 2005 to Dec. 5, 2008.
Air Canada could not immediately be reached for comment.
