60. Any report that she was other than the model passenger on her flight?
I haven't read it. Bombed or not, had she been allowed on the connecting flight there may have been no recognition by anyone around her that the woman was in distress or even "bombed" to the point where she stood out. I've had co-workers who were active alcoholics and few had a clue that these colleagues were intoxicated at work until they went to rehab or AA. Addicts can be quite good at presenting a face of control.

Also, where was it reported that she was talked into going back to rehab, rather than deciding on her own that she needed to go? It was reported that she had been to the Tucson center before and perhaps that comfort level is why she chose the long trip rather than take the chance on a closer program. As for one last drunken binge, she wouldn't be the first client to show up inebriated. It's par for the course.

As for her husband not knowing that she could make it sober, I'd wager that he assumed she'd make it alive as long as she was on a plane or escorted. There was a press report early on that a family friend was lined up to meet her in PHX to make sure she had support before getting on the connecting flight so it's not as if he washed his hands of her and hoped for the best.
