A FLIGHT from Los Angeles to London was delayed on Sunday after a passenger noticed a suspicious Wi-Fi network name.

US ABC reports that the unnamed passenger noticed a Wi-Fi connection entitled "Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork" and reported it to a flight attendant.

Passengers on the American Airlines plane were told that there was a maintenance issue with the plane, told to turn off their mobile devices and kept at a remote area of the airport.

"After an hour, (the captain) said there was a security threat and that we didn't have clearance to take off," passenger Elliot Del Pra told ABC.

The flight did not take off until 1pm the next day with many people forced to stay in LA overnight.

Los Angeles Airport did not explain whose badly named network it belonged to but said in a statement that the matter had been resolved.

"After further investigation, it was determined that no crime was committed and no further action will be taken," the airport said.

Last month on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, a Denver-bound Southwest Airlines flight was diverted to Seattle after passengers noticed wireless hot spot names that included "Southwest Bomb on Board" and, a short time later, "Bomb Location Seat 19E."
