Arriving at Airport

I had bought a Skybus return ticket upon arriving at Melbourne. Used the same to board the bus. After arriving at airport, I had some food and then headed to TigerAir Terminal 4.

Check-in andSecurity

I had completed checkin and printed the boarding pass. As I was carrying handbag, I skipped Check-in and went to security. Security was completed in few minutes.


After security, waited near the boarding gate. Boarding call was made on time. Boarding paper was scanned and allowed to enter the tarmac. Boarding from Terminal 4 was using stairs. I entered through the rear stair.

Crew was at the entrance checking if passengers had boarded correct flight. Directed passengers to their seat. I was seated in the aisle seat as I did not select the seat at time of booking. Placed my handbag under the seat.

Melbourne - MEL


Sydney - SYD



TigerAir provided satisfactory service, I was able to arrive in Sydney on time. Onboard service was Buy On Board. As aircraft is used for domestic flight, entertainment was available. Wifi was not available in those days on board aircraft. Old Melbourne Terminal 4 is demolished, it did not have enough seating space when 3 flight were departing around same time. Overall Flight was ok.
