Sixteen women headed out Thursday on American Airlines from Sacramento to a bachelorette party in Cabo San Lucas while first connecting in Phoenix.
As they were about to board their connecting flight they were stopped — the bride‘s mother appeared to be intoxicated. Her daughter excuses it because she was nervous flying for the first time “in over 20 years” which is why she “had a few alcoholic drinks before their first flight.”
The mother of the bride then “got anxious” and also “nauseous.” One imagines since the nausea came on “during landing” she was left to deal with the consequences on her own, away from the tight confines of the lavatory. At her seat she “had to grab a barf bag” and eventually on arrival stumbled off the plane.

American wouldn’t allow the ill, intoxicated woman to continue her travels. And things escalated from there with the rest of the group, eventually getting them all banned from the flight. Police were called.
According to the airline,
One member of the party appeared to be intoxicated while boarding in Phoenix. After this individual was told they would not be able to take the flight, several other members of their group become irate. They were deemed a safety risk to the crew and others on the flight and not allowed to board.
While American refused to transport the group to Mexico, they were only offered “partial” refunds for their tickets.
