Re: JSX Getting Kicked Out of SNA, Effective Jan 1 2021

JSX most definitely pays ramp fees, landing fees, PAX fees, among others. The ONLY money SNA is missing out on with JSX pax is pass through revenue from retail and food, that's it. Actually, when you operate at an FBO, you don't. You pay for services used at the FBO, not any traditional airline rel...

SNA I’m sure has their reasons, they want as much air service as possible. I’m sure JSX has violated something or not been paying their bills.

Because they operate as a Part 135 carrier, similar to others around the country. Quite simple actually.
