Arrival at Airport

Arrived at the Airport by Skybus from Southern Cross station. I had arrived early to the airport and headed for some meal at the International terminal before heading to Tiger Terminal.

Check-In and Security

I wasn't carrying any check-in luggage. I had check for the flight and printed the boarding pass earlier. I was able to skip the check-in queue and head straight to security.


I had enough time to spare to board, Waited in the boarding area for call to board. Soon enough time passed and boarding was called. Boarding paper was checked and proceeded towards the tarmac. 

Flight for this trip was full. On entering aircraft through the rear stairs, crew checked the boarding paper..As I had not selected the seat while booking, I got a aisle seat for this trip.

Boarding was completed soon and flight was ready for departure. As I was seated in the aisle, watched as the aircraft taxied towards runway 27 and departed towards South turning West and then North towards Sydney.


After reaching cruising altitude, Cabin service began with Buy on Board. As I had already eaten earlier, rested through the flight.
