Do incoming planes have a circle decent or do they straight-line it in to the airport. I'm going to assume a majority of traffic comes from the north.

May be an odd ?, but I get severe pressure build-up and the type of decent/landing makes a huge difference in how my first couple of days on the island will go. Straight in and I can't hear a thing and have earaches for 2 or 3 days. Everything sounds like I'm under water til the ears pop. A gradual circular decent and I'm fine.
