ORD, SEA, IAH, DTW, MSP, soon DFW etc are “smaller” than IAD for AF. DTW is not small for AF. They may operate just one daily flight but don't forget it is a DL hub and considering the revenue sharing JV between AF/DL/KL and all the daily flights across the Atlantic from DTW, it is pretty big for AF.
