Lufthansa : Newcastle-Dusseldorf

Sun Dec 16, 2001 5:46 am

There has been ruimours that due to the popularity of this route, currently operated by CRJ-200 (Eurowings a/c for the winter) that this route will get upgraded to a CRJ-700. Does anyone know if/when this will happen??
Also rumours about a NCL-FRA or a NCL-MUC service, anyone know more about this???

According to our database here at United, it will continue to be a CRJ200, although it will obviously be operated by LH City Line.

Yeah I know the CRJ-700 has visited a few times but didnt know if it was to be introduced, maybe 2 Daily CRJ-200 would be cool.

it was 1xdaily with the 72, then when it went to 2xdaily, it went down to the 42. the 72, however was still seen on the route when loads justified it.

I see... The NCL-DUS route has been operated by EW and 9C previously before LH took it over. Loads have been in excess of 85% consistently.  Smile
