This trip in 2015 was planned to visit Gold Coast and Brisbane. Found the TigerAir to be the cheapest option among the airlines available.

Arrived at the airport and parked at the Long term parking. Took the bus to the Terminal 4.

Check-In

Check-in was using the self-check kiosk, after collecting the boarding pass which was a supermarket type receipt. Stood in the queue to drop the bag. After completing check-in, before heading for security handbag was checked for size and weight.

Security and Boarding

After the passing security, waited near the gate 2. Boarding for the flight was called soon.

Construction of Terminal 4 was still going. Boarding was through stairs from the rear of the aircraft.

Conclusion

TigerAir was the airline for choice for the fare and timing. Melbourne Terminal 4 was the old LCC terminal, Check-in was through self-check kiosk, security was quick, had plenty of time to board. Brisbane airport was easy to travel as had to collect bag and head out. Drive to city was quick being late evening by the time had arrived in Brisbane.
