I was wondering why does Lufthansa serve Newcastle from Dusseldorf and not Frankfurt? Do the two cities have some sort of relationship which enables it to have a 1 x daily flight?
I would have though Frankfurt, or even Munich, would have been better as it offers better worldwide connections, whereas Lufthansa's network from Dusseldorf is only European, with a lot of the destinations already being served non-stop from Newcastle.
How long has this flight been operating and what are the loads like?

I guess there is one or several big companies here that create a constant stream of passengers between the two cities. Other than that, there would be no sense for LH in not linking the city to one of their two German hubs.
