Sydney, Australia – A former and long time member of Pretty Boy Floyd Lesli Sanders and his band are stranded in Australia. The bassist turned frontman is on tour with his new project Prophets of Addiction. It seems the band used some "buddy pass" system for tickets to get to Australia. But are now having a hell of a time getting back. According to the band – they claim they got the tickets through a Delta Airlines employee. But now the airline is refusing to honor the tickets as all flights are full.

Delta Airlines have been completely no help in this situation, almost laughing at us. Now they tell us they cant guarantee we can ever get on the flight and that we should have thought about this before we purchased these "buddy Passes" from a Delta Airlines employee…So the problem is we are now stuck in Australia…… If anyone has any connections to airlines to help get us cheap flights so we can get home, the help would be greatly appreciated.
Today is Monday in Sydney Australia, The band has not been able to get on our flights back to the USA. We are flying on "Buddy Passes" and there is one flight we can take each day and for two days now they have been full. Gotta try again in the morning (Tuesday Sydney time). We have a hotel today but our funds are almost depleted. If anyone has any suggestions or a place to stay nearby the airport it would be greatly appreciated. As we will need to show up each morning until we can board a flight. Thanks so much
