ONE TWO GONE Air Australia Grounded
According to widespread media reports Air Australia has stranded thousands of passengers in the region with the airline going into voluntary administration.
Internationally the carrier flew to Bali, Phuket and Hawaii but travelers now in the middle of their trips are not sure who they will return home.
The Australian newspaper is reporting that passengers including those in Phuket are being told to find alternative ways of coming home given the current financial crisis which has taken hold.
Last year the airline which was then called Strategic has a number of passengers left holding their bags when service to Asia was disrupted.
