Airlines for Inter Australia Flights

Looking into the future, I am researching fares between various cities in Australia. Brisbane to Sydney, Sydney to Melbourne, Melbourne to Adelaide and then Adelaide back to Sydney.

Now to my question. I will be travelling with carry on only. I am getting a wide range of fares depending on the carrier. Can someone tell me a bit about Tigerair or Jetstar? I have searched and really can't find out too much information regarding quality of service or carry on regulations (cost for a carry on?)

Thanks for any and all help!

I note you havent mentioned Virgin. They are full service airline with a mix of no frills prices (ie pay for luggage etc) as well as all inclusive prices.

I prefer them handsdown over the other 3.

You could also research the Qantas Air Pass ... I'm unaware of the details of how it works but if you are willing to spend a bit of time looking into it it may be worthwhile.

Surprisingly, Tiger has been the only major airline in Australia that I've never had any problem with. Other have screwed me one way or another.

Now that Virgin owns the majority of Tiger, they have improved so much since last year.
