LAX flight delayed after WiFi hotspot name prompts concerns

An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles International Airport to London was delayed Sunday after concerns over the name of a WiFi hotspot. A passenger saw the WiFi connection, named “Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork,” and expressed concern to a flight attendant.

The plane was held at a remote part of the airport for three hours and passengers were told to turn off their electronic devices. Passengers said they were initially told that it was a maintenance issue.

“After an hour, (the captain) said there was a security threat and that we didn’t have clearance to take off,” said passenger Elliot Del Pra. Flight 136 was eventually taken back to the gate and was delayed until 1 p.m. Monday, American Airlines officials said.

After further investigation, it was determined that no crime was committed and no further action will be taken,” the airport said in a statement to Eyewitness News on Monday.

You have got to be kidding. I’m sure it won’t be long before Homeland Security will be at my door over my wifi network “FBI Surveillance Van #3”.
