Kings Of Leon's Nathan Followill has slammed Qantas Airways after the carrier's flight cancellations 'fucked up' the band's tour plans.

Flights from the Australian airline have remained grounded for a second day today (October 30) after a row between management and three of its unions over proposed job cuts.

This has forced the Followills to take diverted flights to reach their rescheduled gigs Down Under next week, something that has rankled the drummer.

Writing on his Twitter page, Twitter.com/doctorfollowill, the drummer said:

Dear Qantas, u suck, thanks 4 fucking up my trip 2 Oz. Joberg-Dubai-Sydney. 24 hours in the air. That's how much I love Oz.


He added: "The silver lining is that we are throwing one hell of a halloween party on the plane. I'm going as the drunk guy in seat 5a."

The band played in Johannesburg, South Africa last night (29) and are due to kick off their Australian dates next Friday (November 4) at Sydney's Acer Arena, with shows in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth also pencilled in.

The gigs, originally slated for March, were rescheduled after Nathan sustained an arm injury in January, putting him out of action for three months.
