Wi-Fi hotspot delays flight

A flight from Los Angeles to London was delayed for more than 17 hours on Sunday.
It happened when a passenger noticed somebody accessing a Wi-Fi hotspot with a terror themed name \"The Al-Qaida Free Terror Network.\"
\"At first the captain said it was a maintenance issue, and then after an hour, he came on and said it was a security threat and that we didn't have clearance to take off\" a passenger said.  \"Wi-Fi is within a close range, so it must have been somebody on the aircraft.\" 
It is still not clear what the source of that network was.

Airport police say no laws were broken and no further action will be taken
