Linear Air Now Providing Vermont Business and Leisure Travelers an Alternative to Commercial Air TravelOn Demand Air Travel Company Servicing Vermont Regional AirportsConcord, Mass., September 15, 2008 – The cutback of airline routes and increased fares are fueling travelers search for viable options to traditional travel offerings. Linear Air, a provider of point-to-point air service from the mid-Atlantic region through eastern Canada, makes the travel experience easier and more enjoyable for those traveling to and from Vermont by leaving from and arriving at regional airports.This fall, there will be an estimated 20 million fewer seats on U.S. domestic flights, according to the Official Airline Guide.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was not in a pleasant mood Friday morning when he called in to Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan.After his team’s ugly 31-24 loss to the Bears on “Thursday Night Football,” Jones was asked several questions about why Dallas hasn’t lived up to expectations in 2019. The Cowboys are now below .500 (6-7) after several NFL analysts predicted a strong season. Almost immediately after calling in, Jones stated his displeasure with the radio station. The second question of the interview asked Jones if he was embarassed by the Cowboys’ performance, and the owner skipped the question to complain about the tone.“Get your damn act together yourself. OK? Settle down just a little bit,” Jones said. “I don’t like your attitude to come in. I’ve been traveling all night and don’t have the patience to jack with you today.”I’ve never heard Jerry this mad in his life. I’d be mad too if I caused this.— Jeff Cavanaugh (@JC1053) December 6, 2019MORE: Why Urban Meyer coaching the Cowboys makes more sense than a return to collegeJones was asked about the future of Jason Garrett, as the coach has been tied to several rumors speculating about him being fired. He settled down a bit after being asked this question, and says he understands why those questions come up.”Our fans are frustrated that we’re not playing better,” Jones said. “I fully expect to have those questions [about Garrett’s future] and I know that if you really think about it, if I did have answers as to different directions regarding talent, I would not share them right now. Because first of all, if you’ve got other team’s talent in mind, that’s tampering. Unless they’re not involved in the NFL, and it wouldn’t be smart if they were involved other places.”At one point Jones asked, “Do you understand bulls—?” Jerry Jones on with 105.3 in Dallas at the top of the interview:“Get your damn act together yourself OK? … Settle down just a little bit… I don’t like your attitude”Later, when I asked if he understands questions about Garrett’s job:“Do you understand bullshit?”🔊⬇️ pic.twitter.com/4uAXdZcyH2— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) December 6, 2019The context around this quote is a little confusing since the radio station’s system automatically hangs up on a caller if they are cursing too much. That’s what happened here, and after Jones was disconnected he called back in to the radio station.He was later asked about Cowboys fans wanting him to fix what’s wrong with the team.“That’s fair, that’s very fair. Jerry, do something,” Jones said. “Go fix it. Do something different, even if it’s wrong. Go fix it. I get it.”
