    The surprising thing for me is that there were no French speaking flight attendants on the flight, which I believe originated in Ottawa, a bilingual city. Air Canada only hires bilingual flight attendants, although since they took over WardAir and Canadian Airlines (albeit nearly 20 years ago) they must still have some staff who are unilingual (those 2 airlines apparently didn’t require FAs to speak 2 languages). Must have been irregular operations not to have French speaking staff aboard, and apparently one of the complained-about flights was international which is doubly surprising. Except for a short regional flight I don’t think I have ever been on an Air Canada flight where French wasn’t spoken.
