Perth to Broome flight was less than impressive.

Got exactly what we paid for, cheap price, no frills. Super friendly staff, only problem was that flight was an hour late leaving and 45 minutes late arriving. No problem for us, but not sure I would is Tigerair if I had deadlines to meet. Good for holiday travellers who want value for money.
