Moron sets phone Wi-Fi hotspot to ‘Samsung Galaxy Note 7’…. Panic Ensues

From the “you have to be a complete moron to do this file” comes this story.

A passenger on Virgin Atlantic Flight 358, software developer Lucas Wojciechowski was scanning the plane for in-flight Wi-Fi when he noticed this: 

Here’s what happened next:

A call went out for any passenger with a Note 7 to press their call button.

Mr. Wojciechowski subsequently tweeted the crew’s announcements from the late night flight after the pilot warned passengers they would have to make an emergency landing.

“This isn’t a joke. We’re going to turn on the lights (it’s 11pm) and search everyone’s bag until we find it.

“This is the captain speaking. Apparently the plane is going to have to get diverted and searched if nobody fesses up soon.”

The owner came forward confessing there was no Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on board, but they had changed the name of their SSID wireless device to ‘Samsung Galaxy Note 7_1097.’

Something like this is not funny. You have to be a total moron to even try something like this. And it could have turned out really badly. It is thought that no further action was taken against the imbecile behind this. But I feel that there should have been as apparently this prank delayed flights and likely cost Virgin money.Not to mention bringing up the Note 7 in the news again which is something I am sure that Samsung could do without. Someone has to be held accountable for all of that. And that someone should be the moron who did this.
