SYDNEY - Thousands of Australian remain stranded in Bali on Monday, awaiting updates from Australian airlines about departures from Denpasar.

Qantas low cost subsidiary Jetstar and rival Virgin Australia have delayed or cancelled more flights to Australia's major holiday destination Bali, Indonesia on Monday following the latest advice on the volcanic ash cloud from Mount Ruang.

More than 10,000 Australian travelers are stranded or have their holiday plans ruined after disruptions from the ash cloud over Bali, local media reported on Monday.
