The Delta variant has slightly dented travel demand, but the airline stocks have fallen up to 40% from the recent highs. Spirit Airlines (SAVE) hasn't helped their case with systems troubles causing the cancellation of thousands of flights.

Update - August 29

TSA traffic has definitely dipped, but Sat. traffic was still 77% of 2019 levels despite Delta variant fears and Hurricane Ida. If this is the worst traffic gets, Spirit Airlines is an easy buy down in the low-$20s.
