Kodak Flight Operations?

Does Kodak, headquartered in Rochester, New York have a corporate flight department?
If so what types do they have?

Thank you.

I recall years ago they had Gulfstreams but after so much turmoil these days they might be using public transportation.

I Gogled Eastman Kodak and found several references to their flight ops/

1996 revenue - $16 billion
2005 revenue - $11 billion
2019 revenue - $1.3 billion

$7.8 billion summer 2010. $1.8 billion summer 2012.

Stunning change.

Being affected by similar developments, I can assure you that the article is missing the main point:

TIMING

Being inventive and having spend billions on a technology is less important than being there at the right point in time when a technology is finally embraced by customers and becomes viable due to scaling effects. Kodaks fate and the fate of may other businesses is explained by that. Just look at the car industry.
GM had an electric vehicle in the 90ies.
Apple had a tablet PC in the 90ies. HP, Sharp, Palm, Psion pocket PCs.
There have been many "social networks" before Facebook in the early 2000nds. None is know today, instead a ridiculous cartoon of them.
Video Disc, Betamax ... If the timing is right, even the inferior product will succeed ... the history is full of it.

I don't agree (from a position of fairly profound ignorance:-) that Kodak had a timing problem. A quick look shows that Kodak made the first digital camera ever and marketed consumer products in 1996 and 1999 and I suspect others. The Co. failed in 2012.

Sony 1997, Nikon 2002.

It was something else, they were bang on time and must have had a LOT of money to spend. I am sure there will be many thorough analyses.
