Easyjet employees lack the brusque ferocity of their RyanAir counterparts — which may explain why they are not quite as efficient at getting passengers on and off aircraft. But they certainly have a odd way with the English language which requires them to use the verb “do” in redundant ways. Samples from today’s flight:
We do hope you have a pleasant journey. I do apologise: we don’t have any five-Euro notes. We do thank you for flying with Easyjet. We do hope to see you again soon.
It’s too systematic for it not to be company policy.
