I don't have a clear answer to your question. However, I know that some seats on the Privatair-operated LH flights are/were sold as full fare Y tickets, which may imply that they're sold at a discount.
Another important point to note is that non-stop flights almost always command a premium over connection services. As a result, a non-stop DUS EWR flight in C/J will usually be sold at a higher price than connecting services (where's many airlines compete, such as AF via CDG, BA via LHR or LX via ZRH).
I would be very interested to hear a precise answer from the LH's yield management department.
