Conclusion

Tiger Airways was chosen due to reasonable fare. Flight was on time but arrival was delayed due to lack of parking space.

Hobart Airport check-in was quick. I was not happy when the random security check was done as the security person was joking while conducting the check.

Melbourne airport services were limited to baggage collection and stepping out to catch taxi.
