Actor Daniel MacPherson finds himself stranded in Ireland after his airline unexpectedly cancelled his flight back home to Australia

Daniel MacPherson may not make it home to Australia in time for Christmas after his airline cancelled his flight out of Ireland at the last minute.

The 40-year-old actor had been filming a project in Limerick, Ireland, but was due to return home to Australia.

In a post on Instagram Stories, Daniel vented his frustration after his flight was completely cancelled with no options to change it.

‘Had my seat cancelled today by @etihad due to @nswgovernment1 [sic] hotel quarantine caps,’ he began. 

‘Been booked and paid since September. Quarantine at my cost. No option to rebook or change date. Just cancelled. 4 weeks before Xmas.’

Daniel said that while he was confident he’d be able to ‘work it out’, others in his situation may not be as lucky.

‘Now I’m very fortunate. I’ll work it out. It’ll be fine. But feel for those in the same position, who don’t have the finances or flexibility to get home this Xmas,’ he continued. 

He added: ‘Needs to be a better strategy. A longer term solution. There’s gotta be.’ 

Daniel has spent the last few months away from his young family, wife of five years, Zoe Ventoura, and their 11-month-old son, Austin.

Speaking on the Samantha Gash Podcast back in May, Daniel praised his 39-year-old wife for being ‘very understanding’ of his disruptive work schedule.

‘Thankfully I have a very understanding wife, when I rang up and said, “Hey, I think I might have got this job,”‘ he said.

After travelling extensively for work, Daniel said he’d been planning on taking ‘at least three months off to come home and recover from seven months away, and be there as a husband and as a new father’.
