This trip report is from 2010. I had work related travel to Brisbane. Virgin Australia was formerly know as Virgin Blue Airlines due to trademark issue.
I arrived at airport on time by train. I had checked online and dropped bag at check-in counter.
Being weekend morning, not many travelers, passed security without delay.
