Over 130 Alaska Airline passengers are stuck on Kauai after their flight was grounded before takeoff on Wednesday.

Flight 844 from Lihue to San Jose was cancelled when a strange odor was smelled during a pre-boarding aircraft check.

All crew members were evacuated from the plane and two out of the four flight attendants were treated for throat irritation.

All passengers are being put up in a hotel overnight by Alaska Airlines.

A new flight on a separate aircraft is scheduled on Thursday at 2:15 p.m.
