Daniel Macduff booked a holiday to Cuba through Sunwing that advertised a complimentary on-board champagne toast.
Mr Macduff, from Quebec, said he received a cheaper bubbly instead - and only on the outgoing flight.
The airline said it believes the lawsuit "to be frivolous and without merit".
Mr Macduff's lawyer says the class action hinges on misleading marketing and not the quality of the wine served.
"It's not about the pettiness of champagne versus sparkling wine," said Montreal-based lawyer Sébastien Paquette.
"It's the consumer message behind it."
Mr Paquette said references to real champagne - a sparkling wine variety made specifically in the Champagne region in France - was front and centre in Sunwing's marketing materials.
