Pic: Plane grounded for 17 hours after some clown set up this scary 'Terrorist' WiFi name
The person responsible needs some serious work on their spelling…
A flight from Los Angeles to London was grounded for 17 hours after WiFi hotspot with the name 'Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork’ was seen onboard the plane...
American Airlines Flight 136 was originally grounded for three hours by customs and border officials in Los Angeles while the muppet owner of the hotspot was searched for. But the eejit was never found and it is thought that the person responsible changed the name of the hotspot fairly sharpish when they realised the trouble they’d caused.
Following the search, the crew of the plane refused to fly and the flight was delayed a further 17 hours thanks to the creator of the idiotic WiFi hotspot name. Some other people, however, did see the funny side of the incident...
At least they didn't name the WiFi Hotspot "Ebola Quarantine Tent"

We imagine the scene on the plane was something similar to Meet the Parents when people noticed the truly awfully-spelled hotspot. There are just some things you can't do while on an aeroplane.
