    PASSENGERS trapped on a plane at Melbourne Airport were refused water and forced to buy food and drink while parked on the tarmac for almost three hours.

    More than 100 people including children were on board the Tiger Airways flight TT426 flying to Hobart about 6pm.

    After being told there was a delay due to lost paperwork, passengers were infuriated the hostesses still charged for water despite passengers being confined to their seats until the plane was allowed to take off just before 9pm.

    Probably get what they deserve - bad PR and lots of lost potential passengers!

    There is no such thing as bad PR for el-cheapo airlines.

    The training model is broken. Be it LCC or full service airline. Onboard flight attendants have little or no leeway on making judgement calls. :mad:

    I don't know, I've had some really good experience on some of them, like Jetstar.
