When looking at BA timetables from London to Houston, I saw they fly nonstops from Gatwick and an additional direct flight to Heathrow (via Chicago). That seemed odd - Two non-stops to LGW and a direct flight to LHR? This is the only city I'm aware of in the USA that BA flies to both Heathrow and Gatwick ... Any special reason for the Direct flight?

Pan Am flew DTW-LHR, which was taken over by Delta in the early '90s. They flew the route into Gatwick I'm assuming because Delta had route authority there and not at Heathrow - But American flies to both Heathrow and Gatwick. So why wasn't Delta permitted to continue service DTW-LHR?
