CINCINNATI (AP) -- The president of Delta subsidiary Comair Inc. resigned Monday, weeks after the failure of an overloaded computer system shut down the carrier's flights nationwide on Christmas.

Delta Air Lines Inc., which owns the airline based at the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport, could not give further details about the Randy Rademacher's resignation, spokesman Kip Smith said. Telephone messages seeking comment from Comair were not immediately returned.

Rademacher's resignation comes less than a month after the airline cancelled 1,100 flights on Christmas, stranding hundreds of passengers who couldn't arrange other flights. Comair blamed computer glitches for the problem.
