Conclusion

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.
