Why would BA want to compete with LH anyway....and specifically at DTW?

Although 12 years doesn't seem that much I'd say the world have changed a lot since 2007, including civil aviation and specifically air traffic and aircraft efficiency.
Of course BA was to make more money serving IAH non-stop than stopping over in DTW, no doubt. I didn't need to be BA commercial director back then to say that.

Connection times on LH to/from India can be 5-8 hours at FRA. The DTW flight actually has one of the best connections to India from the eastern US. If you look at flights from places like BOS/PHL/EWR it's terrible. Essentially as far as LH goes the further West the flight originates the better the connections at FRA. There's a reason why both LH and AF have shrunk so much in India and that is because the connections at their hubs are really poor. BA is by far the best European airline to fly with between N.America and India.
