DTW used to have high passenger volumes, in fact they used to operate a 747 to Detroit up until about 1998 I think, when it was replaces with a 777. The 777 came for about a year (I think) and then was replaced with the 767, which currently flies to DTW. The passenger numbers are slowly decreasing. However, amidst all that, it didn't stop Lufthansa from starting daily non-stop flights to Frankfurt in 1998.
Now back to the topic......
BA is such a fond customer of Boeing for the same reasons that EL AL, Saudi Arabian, and Singapore Airlines. It has something to do with politics and the fact that these countries are strongly allied with America, which gives them good deals on Boeing aircraft.

See I believe that no every A380 ordered up to now will be bought so the airlines like SAA are going to sit pretty and the second one comes available that an airline decided they dont it, SAA will put their hand up and I believe BA are going to do the same.
