to the PP with flights to brisbane - be aware that brisbane has a shortage of runway space and flights coming in to brisbane in the evening are pretty much ALWAYS delayed by 30-60 minutes while you circle the airport
It was delayed from the Melbourne end, couldn't take off on time because they were waiting for another flight to arrive. But yes, we circled for about 20 minutes above Brisbane but the captain explained it beforehand.
The absolute worst thing about Tiger is the arrival terminal in Melbourne. It's a cyclone fence, a tin roof, a bitumen floor and a set of portaloos!
