Do watch and experience the trip.


This trip is from March 2017, returning to Melbourne from Sydney.


I had checked online and had printed my boarding pass before arriving at the airport. Took train from Central to Domestic Airport. TigerAir operates from Terminal 2. Since I was travelling without baggage, went straight to security. After completing security, had dinner before heading for the gate.

Being a short 1 hr flight, Cabin Buy on Board [BOB] started in 10 mins after reaching cruising altitude. Few passengers bought meal. I skipped and rested as I had a early wake for work.

Sydney - SYD


Melbourne - MEL



TigerAir was cheapest way to fly domestic. Suited my need. Flight departed 1/2 hr late, entertainment was looking outside window as there aircraft has no IFE on board. Meal is Buy on Board as its a short flight, I had my dinner before boarding. Melbourne as quick exit and to transport as I was travelling without luggage.
