Part of it is definitely seasonal. According to the TSA, we're roughly up 1 million passengers per day from where we were in 2020, but still ~700K per day short of where we were in 2019. Business travel is anemic and international travel is [obviously] not what it was.

That doesn’t instill the fear and panic that need to be conferred.

Bookings are down for to the resurgence in Covid.

Frontier and Southwest have both publicly said future bookings have dropped significantly as the stupid Delta variant spreads.

Covid cases are back to to nearly their all time high. I'm guessing the spike will drop off again rapidly like it did last time, and hopefully before the holiday travel season starts!

But yes, I'm sure that a chunk of the drop in TSA screenings is due to summer break being over.

Summer is over

Delta variant is not helping

Business travel as we used to know it is changed forever.

It is what it is

Changed forever? Maybe. The verdict is still out, but you may be right. If that's the case, the U.S. legacy carriers are going to have to adapt.

just quoting airline CEOs who are proudly talking about how they are "reinventing" things and "looking towards the future, not the rearview mirror" etc etc blah blah
