MIAMI – A South Florida woman has been charged with calling in a bomb threat to keep her boss from missing a flight.

Miami International Airport officials received a call and an e-mail Wednesday claiming that a bomb was on an American Airlines plane. Police searched the specified aircraft but didn't find a bomb.
