Flew QF domestic several times from here and each time the check in (ie Bag drop) experience had been an absolute nightmare. Utter chaos throughout no one knows which queue is for what. Incredibly bitchy Qantas staff member telling people what to do and not to do without knowing herself what's happening. Screening staff at Security has been unfriendly on several occasions partly due to the fact that Melbourne seems to be the only airport in Australia that insists on taking you shaving gel (!) away if you dare to carry this "security threat" in your hand luggage. Strange only that it seems to be pretty fine anywhere else but in MEL. In addition to all that limited choice of food options and constant renovations that seem to lead to anything but a cleaner and better organized airport. Toilets as dodgy as Sydney but one single thing works much better. The taxi queue is much better organized and it takes far less time to end up in your cab. However this advantage is almost entirely reversed by the fact that the airport is far out of the city resulting in insane cab charges to and from the airport.
