Curious.why do they keep saying it is one of the worlds busiest airport? 17Th just in usa. That can be classified as one of the worlds busiest?. Detroit mi is around 17th largest city. In usa. does that mean it is one of the world largest cities? Not trying to be cynical but does it sound better in marketing? I know u know me(.lol)

Well Kev, it's still much busier than Mettetal or Coleman A. Young. Plus you can land an Air Buss or a Dreamliner there. You can even land on Middlebelt, but that is problematic.
