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

They don't get PFC $$$ nor the same high rent from the terminal. Terminal rent should be generally cost recovery - so the airport is financially indifferent to if there is one carrier or 100 carriers; 1 passenger or 1 million passengers. Granted, the question of equity among carriers operating unde...

You’re not wrong about this, but: There is no way this side of the hot place that anyone that had anything to do with writing 380 intended for it to be used so an operator could remove 7-20 seats from an aircraft certificated for 37-50 seats and fly it in a scheduled operation.

Jet Suite Probably doesn't make that much for SNA that they would make special rules for them that they can't make for anybody else. They're an Air carrier and whether they're Part 135, Part 121 supplemental or Part 121 Domestic doesn't matter. What matters is? nobody is above the law. What JSX is ...

Have they been cited by the FAA for a ...

For the MAJORITY of operators: When you use the FBO, you pay the landing fees thru them and ONLY the FBO handling fees/rent. There is NO agreement between the airport and operator when you use the FBO. The airport makes NO money off of you. JSX may have made some direct deals, but the FBO is the on...

You’d have many small hubs, and likely many more airlines, all competing for very similar traffic flows. You’d have the industry prior to consolidation where insolvency was virtually imminent.

There is nothing prohibiting it UNLESS a medium or large hub has an active and triggered FAA Competition Plan that prohibits such. This would certainly be addressed in the prevailing Airline Lease and Use Agreement.

This has much to do with the funding of the purchase of the jetbridge.

If the airport uses FAA funds, it can place its own logo on the jetbridge but not...
