She'll have a 3 hour layover there and won't have to screw around with ORD. Unfortunately she now gets in at 7 pm rather than 4 and I have to get an uber for her as I can't pick her up at that time.
Call the EXP line and see if they will put you on DL17 (LHR-DTW nonstop). Unlikely, but you may get lucky especially given the issue is MX.
