This trip report is return flight in 2014. I was visiting Melbourne, read Trip Report: TigerAir TT251 Sydney - Melbourne
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.
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.
Flight was full, Doors closed on time, Safety demonstration was conducted manually by crew. Pushback commenced on time. After a short taxi, departed from Melbourne. Seated in aisle, could not see outside view.
Seat pocket contained Tigertales and tigerbites along with safety card
Tigertales and Tigerbites - BOB menu
Tigertales - inflight magazine.
Crew commenced Buy on Board service after departure.
Time passed quickly and soon aircraft was approach to Sydney. Crew conducted cabin check and clearing rubbish. Aircraft landed on runway 34L and taxied to gate. Arrived at gate, disembarkation was through aerobridge and stairs. I disembarked using stairs and then entered the terminal building. View of Jetstar Airways in special livery.
After disembarking, headed towards the exit.
As I did not have check-in bags, I walked towards the Domestic train station. Waited for few minutes, for train to Central.
Changed trains at Central and boarded intercity on the way home.
Hope you enjoyed this trip report. Thanks for reading.
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.
