LAX Flight Grounded After Some Jerk Names Their WiFi Hotspot A 'Terror Nettwork'
Passengers on a flight bound for London were delayed a day because some genius decided to name their Wi-Fi hotspot "Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork."A passenger pointed out the name of the network to a flight attendant after Flight 136 had left the gate but before take-off, according to ABC 7. The plane had to be brought back to the gate, and passengers were stuck on the plane for three hours before being let off. Initially, they were told there was a maintenance issue.
It looks like the WiFi hotspot was a prank and not the work of a very dumb terrorist or FBI operative.
The airport told ABC 7, "After further investigation, it was determined that no crime was committed and no further action will be taken."
