Flying from IAD to Honolulu on a direct flight with a 1 yr old and a 5 yr old. Return flights are Lihue to IAD, connecting on a red-eye from SFO. Any tips or advice for traveling so far with kids? Thx

Anyone here fly in/out of DCA or IAD within the last month or so? Trying to get a feel for which airport may be better with COVID in terms of less people, better sanitation, rule following etc. Also, I’ve heard Delta is the better airline at the moment but where I’m headed I can only take United or AA (for nonstop)- anyone recommend one over the other?

401k question: It seems generally advantageous to lump sum your Roth IRA each year as early as possible vs DCA since it can accumulate returns at a higher rate over time. That being said, does this apply to 401k as well? For ex: is there any downside in just front loading my 401k contribution completely each year if I can cover living expenses in the meantime? (i.e putting 100% of paycheck into 401k contribution until limit) thanks!
