But the current bus 37,40 and 380 from the T1 is so cheap, catching a train is going to be so expensive.

Perth are further ahead with their tunnel than Melbourne will ever be.

The train will be the same price as the bus. No airport tax will be applied. There will be another "normal" station after the airport with a total of three stations on that branch line - at present.

I'll believe it when I see it.
If it goes over budget or they want funds to run a shuttle from Redcliffe (was Belmont) Station to T3/4
I suspect this will be the first thing changed

I know an engineer working on this project as an acquaintance. Perth has a couple of tunnels and it makes a huge difference to where you might choose to live. Instead of the western suburbs you can go east to Lathlain/Carlisle and further east and have a half sized mortgage. Prices in Perth are low enough to make Sydney siders cry.

So does the new single Perth airport station serve both domestic and international terminals?
There will be a station at Airport Central which serves Virgin Domestic and the International terminal.

The above mentioned Redcliffe Station will be about 500m from the current Qantas T3/T4 (noting that plans for Perth Airport have everything being centralised at Airport Central.

It will also serve T2 as well, currently airlines operating at that terminal include; Alliance, Tigerair & Rex (as well as some VA intrastate flights).

The first rails have been laid in the tunnels for the Airport line. It is now due to open in late 2021.

The current planning is that train movements will commence at 05:00 to cater for FIFO workers. Unfortunately, the ongoing altercation between QF and the Perth Airport means that a shuttle bus service will have to be introduced to connect the QF Terminals to the Redcliffe Station . It had been assumed that QF would have moved to the main terminal by the time the trains were running.

Don't think there was ever a chance of that.
The New terminal exists in the Master Plan only.

No actual design, approvals, EIS etc
