Folks, do us a favor this holiday season and keep your marital problems off the airplanes. One woman from Lynwood got her husband's plane grounded after calling the airline and telling them that he was planning to blow up the aircraft he was on.

Johanna Woolfolk made the call on November 27 to AirTran, according to CBS Los Angeles. Her husband was pulled from the Atlanta-bound flight, at which point he informed authorities that he and Mrs. Woolfolk were having trouble in their relationship and had just had a fight.

Johanna later admitted to having placed the call. She's due in court next week.
