I would point out in addition the being able to actually operate airlines often take into account the disruption caused by planes being out of position and cancel flights to minimize damage to their network and don't always communicate the real reason for their actions to passengers.

For example I was once told repeatedly the DIA was closed due to a blizzard when Southwest had cancelled all of their flights but in fact the airport was open and some airlines were operating. I was able to switch to another airline and get there several hours late, but in time for an important meeting.
