If You're Flight To Bali Has Been Cancelled There May Be A Solution...

Holiday plans for thousands of Aussies has been thrown into chaos thank to Bali's Mount Agung Volcano blowing its top again.

Twenty-two Jetstar, Qantas, Virgin and Air Asia flights have been affected between Thursday night and Friday morning.

Air Asia has cancelled three flights between Perth and Bali, Jetstar has cancelled 10 flights to and from Australia and another two Jetstar flights to Denpasar from Perth and Sydney have been turned back.

Qantas also turned back two Melbourne and Sydney flights to the island, and delayed two more from Denpasar.

So as you can see, it's chaos!

This morning on 2DayFM Breakfast, Em, Grant and Ed comforted their digital guru Kieran, who was SUPPOSED to be flying to Bali this evening.

Kieran was going to spend two weeks in Lombok, an island just off the coast of Bali, but last night, he received a text message from Jetstar, telling him to call them before heading to the airport.

Although flights to Lombok haven't been affected as badly, Kieran did have a stopover at the airport in Bali before he flew to Lombok.

So, what will happen now? Is his precious holiday, that he's had booked since December last year, cancelled?!

Well, apparently, Jetstar has a solution for him, but it does mean that his 6 hour flight has now been extended to a 23 hour flight.

Before, he was set to depart from Sydney and have a short stopover in Bali before flying in Lombok.

An extra $500 later, Jetstar have been able to book him a new route that gets him around the ash cloud, with him travelling from Sydney, to Darwin, to Singapore, to Jakarta and then, finally, to Lombok:
