Fair use excerpt:
WSBTV Atlanta reports that Comair President Fred Buttrell has resigned.

CINCINNATI -- Delta Air Lines Inc. subsidiary Comair said Friday that President Fred Buttrell has resigned from the regional airline, which is in the middle of a dispute with flight attendants over contract concessions it says it needs to emerge from bankruptcy.

The company said chief financial officer Don Bornhorst will replace Buttrell, who had been president since January 2005.

The two were announcing the change Friday morning in meetings with employees, said Kate Marx, spokeswoman for the airline, based near Cincinnati in Erlanger, Ky.

Buttrell said he felt it was time for new leadership after weighing family and personal needs, Marx said.
