Can an airline cancel a series of tickets due to a no show?

Airline "no show" cancellation filter: my friend and his family missed a flight last night from Montreal to London. The airline, British Airways, have told them that not only have they forfeited those tickets as a result, but also all the tickets on their numerous connecting flights. Is there anything they can do to salvage their tickets?

This is quite a serious situation for them as the connecting tickets are for a family of four and span three continents over the next 4 months.
BA seem to be acting particularly unreasonable to me. My friend was actually on a flight from Miami to Montreal which was rerouted to Ottawa due to a technical issue on the plane and slightly icy runways in Montreal. And therefore, he missed his flight. BA don't seem to be interested in the reasons why and are simply stating that he's a no-show and all tickets are forfeited.
