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

You are conflating multiple issues. Part 380 is the commercial / operational relationship and has nothing to do with the benefits of 30 or fewer seats - most Part 380 prospectuses are filed with mainline aircraft. The benefits of <31 seats fall under the purview of Part 139 (airport certification) ...
