On deplaning, an American Airlines staff member told the women that Zayas’ mother could not board the next flight because she “looked drunk,” Fox 40 reports.

“She is not traveling, OK? She is too drunk,” the anonymous staff member may be seen, says one of the women in the video images shared by the outlet.

“The bride’s mother not the greatest with travel,” Amber Granlund, a bridesmaid, later told Fox 40. “She is in the 50’s, almost 60’s. Or there is something else going on.”

However, Granlund said that the airline official had already called the police, who quickly responded to the scene.

As the bridal party proceeded to the question of a manager in relation to the incident, an airline official then reportedly a ban on the entire group to board the connecting flight on the grounds that they were “unruly” and “that is a security risk for members of the crew and other passengers as per ABC 15 and Fox 40.

Granlund said that the frustrating “mess,” added an additional $16,000 in related costs for the $30,000 trip. The bridesmaid detailed many of the members of Zayas’ bachelor party group slept in the airport, before eventually flying to Mexico.

“A mess. A complete mess that could have been avoided, absolutely,” Granlund said of the overall experience.

Meanwhile, representatives of the carrier return Fox News’ request for comment with the following statement:

“American members of the team are the best in the business, and we support their decisions to deny boarding or to remove a flight to passengers who are disruptive or a safety hazard,” a spokesman told Fox News on March 13. “A member of the party appeared to be intoxicated while boarding in Phoenix. After this person was told that they would not be able to make the flight a number of other members of their group furious. They were considered a danger to the safety of the crew and the others on the flight and not allowed to board.”
