Gulfstream (3M) is apparently leaving the intra-Florida and Bahamas market effective 4/1. Ground staff at most stations have been notified. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November 2010 and was recently awarded EAS routes in Montana (from Great Lakes) effective 5/1. 3M seems to be retrenching to EAS-subsidized flying and pulling out of more competitive markets in South Florida. They are currently operating CO-coded EAS flights out of CLE to BFD/DUJ/FKL/JHW/LWB/PKB with Beech 1900D aircraft. 3M operates at-risk as Continental Connection in Florida and it remains to be seen whether CO will source another carrier to replace the intra-Florida and Bahamas capacity that will be lost. Gulfstream has been cited for safety violations and questionable training tactics over the years. Any thoughts besides good riddance (although I hope a more reputable substitute can be found)?
