Al-Qaeda Wi-Fi network delays LAX flight

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

A transatlantic American Airlines flight was delayed Sunday after a passenger noticed a Wi-Fi connection named "Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork".

aa-pilot-ipadAmerican Airlines Flight 136 bound for London, turned back to the gate in Los Angeles when the hotspot, entitled “Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork” (sic), was spotted in a list of available connections. The passenger notified a flight attendant while the plane was taxiing.

Flight 136 was held in LAX for three hours while passengers were told to turn off their electronic devices. Passengers were initially told that the delay was down to a maintenance issue rather than the discovery of the Wi-Fi network. The plane ended up being rescheduled for Monday at 1pm, with some passengers having to stay overnight in LA before they could board the next available flight.

The Los Angeles airport police said on Monday that "no crime was committed and no further action will be taken."
