Inflight Experience / Seating Airline Responsibilities for Late Inbound Flights

    If the departing flight from the airline’s hub is 7 hours late because the arriving aircraft was subject to ATC control, is the delay of the outbound flight under the airline’s control/responsibility? Would you say they have no responsibility because they are not responsible for the inbound flight, or would they have responsibility due to the lack of ability to provide an alternative aircraft for the outbound flight? Since ATC only affected the inbound flight but never restricted the outbound.

    Thanks in advance for your help. It's really appreciated.
