Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Pros: "was very quick"
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Cons: "Why is there no rating for on-time delivery? After my super-late departure from PDX to AMS (computer outage), I essentially had the same problem on my return flight. KLM's Birmingham to Amsterdam flight departed so late that I again missed my Amsterdam connection."
Pros: "Don’t know how to just give a “n/a” response for food and entertainment. It wasn’t applicable because of such a short flight."
Cons: "The gal who checked me in for my flight didn’t check my baggage all the way through even though I have a connecting flight with Aer Lingus to LA. However, fortunately, the baggage team caught the error and retagged my luggage properly. By the time I realized her error, they had already emailed me with the solution! Yay baggage team!! Thank you!"
Pros: "Nothing since I’m still in dublin"
Cons: "There was minimum help. Wait actually, in Manchester there was none. No one at the gate until 2:15pm when the flight was already 20mins late! No one updated an incoming flight with passengers needed to make connections."
Pros: "We were at front"
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding line held in confined area on stairs before boarding"
Cons: "My flights were cancelled by Aer lingus and I was rebooked improperly, resulting in my being removed from a plane and having to be rebooked at least three times because of how long it took."
Pros: "The flights themselves were nice. Food was fine. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "Only two check in desks. On the line for over an hour. Good thing we got there over two hours early. Computer and belt broke down. Finally got passed security with minutes to spare. Had to run to our gate. We should not have to do this if we arrive very early. If you have an early morning flight make sure you have enough people working to check them in on time."
Pros: "Nothing. It took longer to get from the gate to the runway than the flight itself."
Cons: "When I was about to board the flight after a 23 hour delay, I saw my bag sitting AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STEPS leading to the flight. I asked the flight attendant about it and she assured me the bag would arrive with me. Guess what? A dat later and I STILL don't have my bag! Absolutely ridiculous and will NEVER fly Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "Free checked baggage. Calm atmosphere.. low marks for food and entertainment because there was no option to say not applicable. The options in the magazine were reasonable."
Pros: "Crew pleasant"
Pros: "Boarding at rear as well as front"
Cons: "Boarding outside in drizzle. Charging for soft drinks"
Pros: "Never got on as we were 5 minutes late at the bag drop. Attendant telephoned her line manager 40 minutes before take off and refused to take our luggage. She did manage to book us on flights for the following day at a cost of £290. Not a good experience!"
Cons: "Never made the plane."
Pros: "On time, newish plane. A very short flight so"

Cons: "Dodgy electronics, had to reset screen in headrest several times and never really worked. Sat 30 + mins in tarmac after landing waiting for a stand."
Cons: "The line for checking in was very long and the workers were very slow and not too friendly. The boarding was carried out in a first come first serve way. People started a line and instead of calling passengers by number groups, those in charge did nothing! So, my husband and I waited and noticed that people were boarding as is."
Pros: "courteous crew, reasonable food and snacks"
Pros: "Not much to say about Air Lingus averall bed experience. Will not book with airline again"
Pros: "I appreciated that Aer Lingus kept track of our vegan food choices for all 4 flights and and every flight flew on schedule. Watching movies without an extra cost was appreciated. Attendants were all very nice."
Pros: "The fact I got hone"

We were told we could keep our water but then going through security wevwetevtoldcwe couldn't and there was no offer of water. The captain did apologize. I have no issue with aer Lingus staff they did their job. It is Mabchester airport which is bad as they are the ones that were responsible for these two incidents happening"
Cons: "The boarding situation at Gatwick was a complete mess, they made us change the gate THREE times!"

Pros: "Nice stewards."
Cons: "Terrible bag handling and passenger experience management wrote to airline 3 times and no response. Was without luggage for a week with no offer of assistance."

Cons: "no real problems."
Pros: "i liked nothing from the experience on this leg or the journey. I was frustrated and angry."
Cons: "The check in procedure in Amsterdam took almost two hours. Then I was late to the gate. There was no assistance getting to the gate for none of the passengers who experienced these delays."
Pros: "Configuration of seating"
Cons: "Minimal service didn't appear to be any attendants down ng periodic water service but I did doze off and may have missed it"
Cons: "Late service, poor communication leading to events that left me angry and frustrated and left my friend in tears. I won't be flying British Airways ever again if humanly possible."

Cons: "Lunch was extra even though it was noon."

Cons: "Paying for the cup of teA seems a bit mean"
Cons: "Luggage missing"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Cons: "Broken kiosks at airport meant that everyone had to check in at the counter - only problem was there were no Aer Lingus staff anywhere to be found. We, and dozens of other passengers waited 40 min+ before anyone showed up. Then when staff arrived they were oblivious to the huge line that had formed - they carried on their small talk amongst theirselves oblivious to the passengers who had been waiting for a long time to get their boarding pass."
Cons: "Gate agents in Naples were incompetent causing a 90 minute delay in departure"
Pros: "Service was great, everyone was really helpful"
Pros: "The crew is nice"

Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."
Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"

Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Cons: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."
Pros: "Their evacution video is interesting"

Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"

Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"
Cons: "Significant delays"

Cons: "Stricter control on cabin bags. The result was that our bags were already on the belt when we got to customs area"

Pros: "they got me to LA"
Cons: "food and drink not served for 2 h ours / flight delayed 1hr 45 mins, no choice of meal it was a take it or leave it offer, ice lolly served 2 hours after food and horrid snack before landing - on a 10.5 hour flight not good enough, I will consider another airline next time I go. 3 trips a yr"
Pros: "Not enough information"
Cons: "The flight times went explained properly very missleading"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that we had to pay for a cup of tea. Surely that should be complimentary."

Pros: "All flights on time and luggage arrived with us."
Cons: "It wasn't British airways and we had to get to the airport extraordinarily early because no online check in. Pretty sure no one at Aer Lingus likes their job."
Cons: "Worse experience ever!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Seats are too small for anybody above 5'8". My knees were hitting the back"
Pros: "Cleanliness, staff, food, staff"
Cons: "@ 6'4" leg room was tight. Please would airlines load from the back to be more efficient?"
Pros: "Quick and easy!"
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Going through immigration in Dublin and the flight over behind well managed"
Cons: "Security in Dublin is a bit disorgation going from the U.K. Into the US terminal. I lost my global entry card in the process and not much one could do with that process"
Pros: "OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS MADE DIFFICULT AT BEST"
Cons: "INITIAL FLIGHT TO LONDON CANCELLED ONLY HOURS BEFORE FLIGHT...MANCHESTER FLIGHT WAS LATE TO HEATHROW WAS LATE,THEREFORE MISSED FLIGHT TO L.A. AND HAD TO STAY IN LONDON...LASTLY,I HAD UPGRADED MY SEATS TO MAKE MAKES WIFE'S FIRST OVERSEAS TRIP COMFORTABLE....WE WERE SEATED IN BACK OF PLANE...WILL REQUEST MY SEAT MONEY FOR ROUND TRIP BACK..."
Cons: "No seats in gate area. Had to line up in the hall. Manchester terminal 3 is a dump."
Pros: "Pleasant efficient staff. Flight on time"
Pros: "I liked the demeanor of the crew that I interacted with and I appreciated the updates from the pilot since we were delayed into London and I had a quick connection."
Cons: "The breakfast option ran out by the time the crew got to me in the middle of the plane. The delay was nerve-wracking with the very close connection to my international flight."
Pros: "Service was fine, the plane was full but it was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the gate was not announced at the airport n London until 15 min before departure which was irritating. This flight was delayed and my checked in luggage did not make it to my destination. Hope to get it sometime tomorrow (a bit inconvenient but it happens)"
Pros: "The food was acceptable and served in a timely, efficient way. The entertainment options were very good and the system easy to use."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable due to being so narrow and also very little leg room. I was in the second seat in a 4-seat row and had difficulty getting through the space to seat myself. I'm a person of average size. On a six hour flight this becomes very irritating."
Cons: "Because I didn't make it and I want my money back"
Pros: "No delays, good quality seating and service"
Cons: "The change to a packet of crisps or nuts instead of a snack."
Pros: "Standard BA dependability. Like a dependable but stodgy old uncle."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process. No enforcement of boarding groups"
Pros: "The price was right!"
Cons: "I know the saying “you get what you pay for”, but good service from the flight attendants should be expected in the price. It was hard to get a greeting or a smile from them, far from prompt delivery of food or coffee ordered. We were traveling with two kids under 5, but there was no help offered. You are expected to pay for any and all food or drinks, including water. The airline could at least offer free water. The meal quality was mediocre for the price paid, and their stock ran out pretty fast."
Pros: "Boarding was seemless and nice"
Cons: "There was a delay which was communicated, inflight entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "The seats are old and uncomfortable. No leg room. Felt very cramped the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Took a long time to board."
Pros: "Premium economy is a great way to travel"
Cons: "Flight was a mutually on Iberia from Madrid to a Miami. All I can say is that MAD is a HOT MESS!!"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "There was no problems whatsoever."
Cons: "Infotainment system"
Cons: "Mucho frío y baños muy sucios."
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "Long walk to our gate."
Pros: "Thw crew were amezing, with a lot of patient. The entertainment was graet. The seats were graet.7;"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Ticket had no info on baggage allowance. Got charged $55 for one piece. Website has glitches that would not save passport info. Flight attendant did nothing. Did not ask people to have their seats upright during landing. No food or even water for a 7 hour flight unless you pay. Seat uncomfortable. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Nothing -- though seat was okay. No leg room, but it reclined a little, and had those foldable headrests."
Cons: "The boarding was supposed to be by zone, but was just a mad rush. They served no food, not even for money. There was an onscreen ordering option, but for the entire flight it said "this service is temporarily closed". They didn't have a beverage cart. Not even water or coffee. I couldn't even get a cup of water to swallow some ibuprofen and an allergy pill (somebody brought a companion cat, I suspect, quite near to me). No food or water on an international flight across the Atlantic??? You've got to be kidding me -- that's gotta be close to illegal, not providing any means of hydration. But it's certainly cheap, mean, and unacceptable. Pathetic, too."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled because of the error of the travel agency to book enough time for me to connect to my flight so I was stranded in Manchester."
Cons: "Awful. My departing city (ZAG) was unable to process tickets for my connecting flight. Upon arrival to (MAD) the gate agent was distributing tickets on a 1st name basis. Literally just handing out tickets without verifying IDs. Not all us PAX received a ticket and were instructed to go to the customer service desk, all the while boarding was ACTIVE at the gate. While at the customer service desk, Iberia showed little attention and/or urgency for us folks who did not have our connecting flight credentials. I finally received a hand-written ticket to board an international flight. My original seat selection was not honored. The overall flight experience was poor and NOT enjoyable."
Cons: "We had a terrible experience with iberia airlines,working with british airways.We almost missed our fl8ght as they cannot find info about e tickets in the computer(otherwise i had tge print out of our tickets). Truly it was a night mare for our family. But we are really glad that we were able to board in the nick of time and finally home ."
Pros: "Iberias actual flights are always excellent from the crew, entertainment, food, and all the way up to the pilots smooth landings."
Cons: "No free food or drink was offered."
Pros: "Was very lucky and had whole row of three seats to myself. Also time zone change so flight was only really 1 1/2 hours instead of 2 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Once again, my minor child (5 years old) was not seated with me. I don’t understand. Her birthday is listed with her ticket. Why ask the age of children under 11 if they’ll be seated with strangers? Moreover, we were loaded onto the plane from both ends, irrespective of our seats, so there was mass confusion as two sets of passengers were crossing over each other, looking for seats. Using hand signals to communicate, as it was an international flight with passengers speaking several languages. The crew stood at the entrances to the plane, watching."
Cons: "My experience."
Pros: "Hospitality, patience, and efficiency. Everything was clean, the food was warm and tasty. the employees were kind and polite all the time. The technology functioned flawlessly. The standard seats were a bit tight but manageable."
Cons: "Airline personnel were not helpful and seemed annoyed when asked questions about a very tight connection I was trying to make in Madrid. They brushed off my questions with one word answers and then it turned out that we were 10 minutes late arriving and I missed my connection. The customer service people who were supposed to re-book me, actually tried to blame me for missing the connection! Overall, not a great experience -- very inefficient process with no one at the airline taking responsibility. Won't fly again if I have the choice."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "No complaints everything was good No delays on time flights going and returning back"
Pros: "On time or early"
Cons: "Cramped quartrrs, plastic food."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 3 hours. No apologies. Nothing. Interesting thing: NYC to Madrid, 3 hours late, missed connection, no apologies., nothing One week later: Madrid to NYC: 3 hours late, no apologies, nothing. IBERIA AIRLINES: Never again!"
Pros: "Check in personnel were able to place me in the 3rd row where the seat pitch was poor but not as bad as the rows farther back. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "This was return part of my journey. The LHR to MAD leg of my journey was extremely painful. I was unable to pay online or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time online or on the phone. Even in the 3rd row it was difficult to fit my thigh length in the seat pitch. I had to sit with my legs splayed and with one leg in the aisle. My leg was constantly hit by luggage, pax, and cabin crew. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. With the short seat pitch emergency evacuation would be very difficult for me and the other pax. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years."
Pros: "Crew was lovely. Economy seats were on the roomier side. Entertainment options were excellent. Would choose to fly with them again."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Boarding process was poorly organized."
Pros: "The entertainment is great, I always appreciate a good movie selection for long haul flights. The space is ok and the seats recline well. The blankets and pillows were warm and comfortable too. Food was remarkably edible."
Cons: "The beverage services should come around more often. Two cups of water during a 9 hour flight just aren't adequate."
Pros: "Almost nothing!!"
Cons: "Worst flight I've had ever. Plane was badly maintained. No soap in toilet and faucet did not work. Seats were extremely uncomfortable and absolutely no leg room (I'm not tall, only 5'10") The steward and stewardess talked with each other the entire time very loudly. The entire plane could hear. They laughed and giggled. Several people asked them to stop so people could sleep. It's a job not a date!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to weather. BA could not rebook me to get me to Seville in time for my meetings."
Pros: "Air hostess were pleasant. Take off and landing were super smooth. Plane was new and very spacious."
Cons: "Boarding process was confusing and disorganized. There were no vegetarian food options available for the dinner."
Pros: "Food, entertainment (great monitors), new cabins."
Pros: "Easygoing friendly staff"
Pros: "A321 feels outdated but the seats were not bad for sleeping. It was a basic 3-hour flight."
Cons: "Stuff was busy SELLING drinks and food. When I asked for a glass of water the stewardess said she would come back after this round... no she didn't. Although it didn't matter that much for such a short trip."
Cons: "Wasn't informed about this being an American airlines flight. No prior information given. Restroom in the plane was dirty and smelly. Did not give me a landing card even when told that I don't have a UK passport."
Cons: "My seat was behind a couple with two children that cried and cried and screamed during the flight, couldnt sleep not even with the headphones helped listening to those children crying. Iberia offered to check in my luggage so i can pick it up at my final destination, but my bag never made it. Had to wait two days woth no clothes or work items i needed in my luggage. Overall a very bad experience with iberia"
Pros: "Everything was great including staff, entertainment (movie/show options) and luckily an extremely smooth flight."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of legroom. Service was pleasant."
Pros: "Overall I give the flight an average score, I like that everything was attended in a service oriented manner."
Cons: "I didn't like the aspect of lack of order at the airport specially when boarding, crew seemed a bit lost for a second there. In some respects I felt the plane had a dated feel to it; but then, I've never flown with Iberia before."
Pros: "Missed flight as scheduled changed forward by half an hour and re-organising another flight was difficult. Had to fly from another airport in Spain and transfer was without assistance. Staff did a good job at sorting a solution. The return home on BA was excellent and very efficient."
Pros: "Great crew, funny and friendly. Really enjoyed my first experience on Iberia. The Economy Plus was really nice. I wasn't expecting a preflight beverage. Nice touch."
Pros: "Flight time and efficiency was fine."
Cons: "BA doesn't give food. Must purchase... No problem!! BA doesn't accept USA or China CC or debit. I was starving! After using on earlier flight, I knew I could use Apple Pay. Old, dumb, inconsiderate, rude flight attendant wouldn't even attempt trying alternative payment. She humiliated me. I was uncomfortable, embarrassed, hungry, and furious the entire flight. Never ever again! British Airways is incompetent!"
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks"
Pros: "My rerun flight was overbooked so they had to find another flight for me and one other in my group of 4. Nothing was offered to make up for the inconvienience. They did manage to find a direct flight that departed s couple hours later."
Cons: "Waiting for luggage at JFK."
Pros: "On time experience."
Cons: "Tight quarters, I'm 6'2". No free coffee options."
Pros: "Cres was great and the food"
Cons: "Flight was 4:30 hour late"
Cons: "I didnt like that it was tight. People in front of me laying down on there sit and I couldnt even reach my backpack drom under the seat or move much. Flight shaky and landing verh bumpy on was back to Denver"
