Correct, based on the expected aircraft just 71% load factor but there were quite a few three class versions (354/360 seats) so more like 77% load factor.

November is not one of the busier months for Dubai looking at the UK figures but that could also be said for the figures pre-Covid.

If you are using load factor as a measure of route performance, is it relevant that they substituted lower capacity a/c on occasions?

Maybe more relevant is that 158t of cargo was carried, 50% more than any other month of the year.

Trying to think whether the world cup should have increased Dubai traffic in November or whether it would have subdued it?

I'm not sure why it would have increased traffic.

EK don't fly from Dubai to Doha, and they don't codeshare with QR on that route, so a separate ticket would have been needed DXB-DOH £944 return cheapest for one hour flight. many probably travelled 90mins up the road and Caught direct Qatar

50% increase in cargo is great.

with Teesside setting up a freight centre I wonder if this will effect Ncl in the years ahead

Virtually all NCL's cargo is carried in the belly of the EK 777 or on the FedEx 737. There is very little ad hoc work. The 'just in time' charters for Nissan on biz jets and small turbo props are so small that they don't trouble the scorers down at the CAA.

For some reason it appears the powers that be decided passengers were the only way at Newcastle.

It appears very little, if any investment has been put into freight or ancillary work..hangers , paint , maintenance.

This is despite a freight base market of Pharmaceuticals,Del la Rue ,Nissan etc. combined with an aviation void in the area , meanwhile, Teesside scraped along, just surviving.

Teesside now appear to have found a market and despite minimal freight so far, it appears that the future could be brighter due to the pro active Mayor and airport management?

Apart from developing the freight village (at a guess I would say 3 times larger than MME's hangar?), Apron G for mail/freight flights, and the academy. Newcastle doesn't have a lot of spare space for big hangars, the site is a lot smaller than MME

This is despite a freight base market of Pharmaceuticals,Del la Rue ,Nissan etc.
Del la rue is away, and the others won't sustain freight only services. Nissan 'just in time' charters tend to be spilt between NCL/MME depending on origin/operator

Have a look at a map - the urban areas in the northeast are small and surrounded by fields and moorland...

The airport are looking to grow this service, recently announcing a new Cargo Business Development Manager who previously worked with the Emirates skycargo team at Newcastle.

If anyone picks up NCL-BHD, Emerald Airways would be a good bet. The problem is they only have three aircraft on their UK AOC at present to operate from Belfast City. It may come at some point though. It has always been a popular route in the past, running simultaneously with Aldergrove flights.

My understanding was that Easyjet use short distance routes such as BFS-NCL and BRS-NCL as filler when they would otherwise have aircraft on the ground. Loads can be really strong but yields are often not great but they keep the planes in the air, generating revenue.
