The Herald Sun is reporting that hundreds of Australian travellers have been left stranded due to major delays on international flights between Melbourne and Los Angeles.

This afternoon’s 1:10pm QF93 flight yesterday’s 9am QF93 flight and Sunday’s 9:40pm QF94 flight have all been cancelled.

Some 170 Scouts are stuck in LA as a result and there are multiple reports that they’re getting radio silence from Qantas customer service.

Many have been left out of pocket, some up to $1000, having to reorganise travel plans.

Qantas has said the cancellations are due to mechanical issues.
