Roll-aboards must be stowed in the overhead lockers wheels first.

We do invite you to look in the in-flight menu where you will find the range of in-flight meals and snacks that we do provide.

We do ask that you do stow your tray tables in the fully upright and locked position. We also do ask that you do bring your seat to the upright position in preparation for landing. All electronic devices must be powered down or put into flight mode at this time.

Please exercise caution when opening overhead lockers as items may have shifted during the flight.

We do understand that you have other options and we do appreciate you flying with us.

We do wish you a good day here in San Francisco and we do wish you a safe onward journey to your final destination.

It didn't have 2 meanings when Barry McGuigan had to pay $700k libel damages to Barney Eastwood. The thick twat thought literally meant the same as practically when he claimed he 'literally got down on his knees begging BJ not to have to fight'.  On realising his mistake, rather than back down and apologise for bring a stupid Monaghan clampet who didn't fully understand English he foolishly decided to stick with the story and got fleeced in court.

Still regard Morrissey as worse. Especially now he does the hurling final and he goes off into a prepared monologue in a blatant but feeble attempt to be seen as the voice or concience of the sporting public or some sort of self-aggrandising thing like that. And as for all the Dolores O'Riordan references in last year's final  ::)

Find most of the stuff listed above are really words rather than phrases. There's plenty of those that could be listed here but one that I had heard recently from some post-match interview to remind me of it was "From the Get Go". Can youse not just say "from the beginning/start" like the people who aren't reduced to being walking cliches?
