This holiday trip was in June 2013. Tasmania was on my list of places to visit. I had few days holidays and decided to fly to Hobart via Melbourne.
I was working in the city in those days and carried bag to work. After work took train from Wynyard to airport. View from Circular Quay station.
City Circle line goes around the city and then to the airport. Below is the train ride video.
After alighting at the Domestic terminal, walked up to the departure terminal for Tiger Airways.
I was travelling light for the short trip. Check-in was through counter, dropped my check-n bag. Received the boarding card.
I then went to complete security check. Which was a quick couple of minutes as I was already prepared.
After completing security, I had early dinner as I wasn't planning to buying any food on board.
I had arrived early, with spare time after dinner.view of the terminal

I was soon time for boarding. Tiger airways operates on the opposite wing of the terminal. Walk back to gate.
Upon arriving at the gate, realized this flight will be boarding using bus
At the boarding gate, boarding card was scanned and directed to head towards the door. Bus was waiting to fill passengers. Being early I got a window seat on the bus.
Tiger Airways flight TT591 Sydney(SYD) - Melbourne(MEL) was to be operated by VH-VNH
Boarding from both ends of the plane.
My seat was in the front section and entered through the front door.
After my boarding pass was checked, was directed towards my seat. Tiger Airways A320 being single aisle has 3-3 seating in all economy configuration. Seat were clothed
Having an aisle seat was more comfortable.
Push-back commenced on time. Since the aircraft was parked in remote gate. Push-back was quick. safety demonstration was conducted manually. Aircraft departed from runway 16R towards the South.
As the flight departure was late afternoon, most people were resting.
After attaining cruising height, seat belt sign was turned off. Flight time being short, Cabin crew began the BOB service. Didn't see many people purchasing being late afternoon flight.
Side view. cabin was bright being a sunny winter day.

Crew announced that flight would be arriving in Melbourne on time and descent would commence shortly. Cabin crew went around the cabin to collect rubbish.
After landing, aircraft was parked in remote bay.
After alighting through the stairs, walked towards Terminal 4.
Being a domestic flight, my bag arrived at the carousel shortly. Collected my bag and headed to check-in for the next flight to Hobart.
Hope you enjoyed the report.
Thanks for reading. End of trip.
Tiger Airway was airline of choice due to ticket price. Flight departed and arrived on time. Being a short flight on board service and entertainment was not an issue.
Sydney airport was efficient being off-peak time at the terminal. Melbourne Terminal 4 was a LCC building with minimal service, Building has been demolished with new structure in its place.
