At that point, she should have asked to be rerouted on a different airline, something like maybe US Air to Charlotte and then from there to ORD.

Weather can create all kinds of problems, planes get out of position, crews run out of time etc.

I once had a trip where I had to fly from DTW to Richmond VA via Pittsburg on US Air. The US Air flight was scrubbed due to weather and I wound up flying making the trip via DCA.
