A plane at Los Angeles International Airport was stuck on the tarmac for three hours Monday because a Wi-Fi network was named after al-Qaida.
One passenger on board the American Airlines flight to London, U.K., was using a smartphone and found a Wi-Fi network called "Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork" and told a flight attendant, ABC7 News reported.
After waiting on the plane for an hour in a remote area of the airport, passengers were informed of a possible security threat and that they weren't allowed to take out, the station reported.
"After further investigation, it was determined that no crime was committed and no further action will be taken," the airport told ABC7 in a statement.
The flight took off at 1 p.m.

Good a reason as any to delay a flight.
