A release says the carrier, which is based at CVG will cease operations after September 29th. Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport spokesman Jay Brock says the airport sees this as a business decision for Delta.&nbsp;&nbsp;Brock says CVG is continuing to look for other airlines to serve the airport. Brock says Delta has indicated it will likely lay off Comair&#39;s approximately 17-hundred employees. Delta says the discontinuation of Comair&#39;s operations will not result in any significant changes to its network since Comair accounts for approximately one percent of Delta&#39;s network capacity and says it will be a seamless transition for customers.</p><p> Fri, 27 Jul 2012 17:44:29 +0000 Maryanne Zeleznik, WVXU-Cincinnati 30267 at http://weku.fm
