Melbourne - MEL
Sydney - SYD
Tigerair was my choice for this trip offering the cheapest ticket at reasonable price. Flight departed and arrived on time. Crew was friendly. Entertainment isn't available on short flight. Meal was BOB. The old LCC at Melbourne was basic as it was demolished to build the new Terminal 4. Sydney was quick as just had to walk out of the terminal.
