The flight crew department warned the owner of the smartphone saying that he should come out immediately and should hand over the handset to them. But, he never came out. However, after several warnings and threatening of immediate landing, the owner came out and said that there's no Galaxy Note 7 in the plane, but his Wi-Fi hotspot was named 'Galaxy Note 7'.

As we all aware of the fact that all the airlines in the ever country have prohibited the carrying of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone into the flights. The decision was immediately made after several Galaxy Note 7 units started catching fire due to some design issue in the smartphone that resulted in the phone's battery explosion.
