After arriving at the airport around 11.50 am, headed to the Tiger Airways Terminal Check-in counter to drop bag. Being a small building, food options were limited. After receiving my boarding pass, I went to International terminal for lunch.

Conclusion

I had chosen Tiger Airways as I had a good fare when booking ticket. Flight had departed on time, arrival was delayed due to runway change. I wasn't affected as I was going home. Service on board was limited to BOB which I did not use. Melbourne Tiger Terminal was inadequate for the number of travellers, building has been demolished to be replaced a much nicer facility. Sydney Airport was arrival was without drama. Taxi took time as it was starts of domestic evening peak. Overall had a satisfactory trip.
