More than 200 passengers on a Dreamliner plane belonging to Norwegian have been stuck in Florida for the past two days due to technical problems.

The plane should have take off on Saturday morning for Stockholm Arlanda Airport from Fort Lauderdale in Florida but was cancelled due to technical problems, newspaper VG reported.

Many of the 238 passengers have been booked in to hotels and don’t yet know whether they will make it home for Christmas.

“I don’t know whether my wife will get home for Christmas. I have not said anything to the kids, who have been waiting for two days now. We’re keeping up hope and are anxious to hear what Norwegian has to say about getting the Norwegian passengers home,” Tom-Erik von Krogh Martinsen told the paper.

Norwegian spokesman Daniel Kirchoff said the plan was still to fly the passengers to Sweden on the company’s Dreamliner, as it is hard to find space for so many people on other flights at Christmas time.

“Flights are fully-booked. We always look for the best solution in any given situation. We’re trying to find a solution as quickly as possible.” Kirchoff told Aftonbladet.
