Isn't it Arabic origin? But Arabic is "musafir" which means traveler, and also from "safara" which means travel (past tense, singular, 3rd person).

I am persian. We learned some Arabic at school. I believe it's origin meaning "to travel" (safar) is Arabic but also used in persian.

Why is it not "misafirler"? Is there never a plural after "çok"?

The former is "customer." The latter is "guest." They are quite different indeed.

Thank you! I learnt it in an exercise about hotels, but I guess a hotel guest is also a customer...
