CNBC Fast Money's Pete Najarian said on the show that the airlines have been under a lot of pressure lately. It looks like investors are buying call options now to make a bullish bet in case a bottom is near.

There was also a big volume in the September 36 call options of American Airlines Group Inc (NASDAQ: AAL). Over 40,000 call options were traded in the first 45 minutes of the day in this name.
