Entering the clouds
Reaching cruise altitude
Inflight service began sometime after 1/2hr of flight. Some passengers did make purchase, price was reasonable. I had my fill earlier, didn't make any purchase.
Being seated in the last seat of the aircraft. it has no recline and close to the toilet. Being a short flight, it wasn't a problem.

Brisbane - BNE
Melbourne - MEL
TigerAir flight was the best priced among options available. Flight departed and arrived on time. Being a LCC, food was Buy on board. Entertainment was lacking, being a short flight didn't matter to me. Brisbane Airport was convenient to travel. Travelling domestic was able to check-in quickly . Melbourne Airport Terminal 4 was undergoing construction, had a long walk to the terminal building after disembarkation.
