- Flights between Australia and Bali were canceled every day in September
- The problems are due to technical problems on board Jetstar aircraft
- Between 1,000 and 4,000 people are stuck in Bali
Since the beginning of September, daily flights between Australia and Bali have been canceled due to technical problems.
Neil Mitchell told 3AW on Monday that between 1,000 and 4,000 people are stuck in Bali.
Some travelers have had to wait five days to be rebooked on another Jetstar flight after multiple cancellations.

Frustrated Australians have been venting at Jetstar since trouble began late last week.
“Jetstar flight from Bali to Sydney canceled tonight. Next flight in 4 days, won,” one person posted on the Bali Bogans Facebook page.
“On my way back from Bali my 12:45 flight was delayed twice and if I don’t get to Melbourne tonight I will lose my job,” wrote another on Twitter.
A Jetstar spokesman told NCANewswire that some flights between Australia and Bali’s capital, Denpasar, have been canceled due to “technical requirements”.
