Not sure how I missed this story last week.
A passenger was detained on a Southwest plane at Seattle-Tacoma Airport after using ominous names for his Wi-Fi hot spot, sources said.
Passenger Alayna Keagle said people became concerned Thursday after noticing strange and disturbing hot spot names emerge, such as “Southwest – Bomb on Board.”
…“He changed it to ‘the bomb is on this seat,’ and then he changed it to something about the stewardess being hot,” Saldi said. “And so that’s why once we found all that stuff out we realized he was probably just goofing off.”
Apparently this happened on September 11th.
The plane’s pilot pulled off the active taxiway, police surrounded the plane and then boarded it. The man was detained.
All passengers were then pulled from the plane, and all bags re-screened with dogs, before passengers were allowed to make their journey to Denver.
It’s been only two months since armed gunmen stormed a Canadian plane bound for Panama.
