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?

An airport is an airport. Either way you’ll be in close proximity whether through the airport or on the plane.

DCA is only domestic flights, so that in of itself eliminates the risk associated with international travel

If I were flying, my primary concern would be the flight itself, not the airport. The way I see it, the biggest risk in flying right now emanates from the close proximity to others during a flight, not walking through the airport. I would look more at the # of seats filled on the fight itself. Am I missing something?

I did DCA and BWI. DCA has lesser foot traffic than BWI I must say. I took Delta and AA, prefer Delta over AA but in comparison to AA and UA, can’t help you on that.

Did both DCA and IAD...would definitely pick DCA

I’ve flown out of both and didn’t notice any major differences. DCA was much emptier, but that could have been a product of what day/time I was flying.

Flew out of IAD on United a few weeks ago. Absolute ghost town in the morning. Was sad. No issue with spacing. Inflight was fine - flight was pretty empty. I was in F and had a seat mate. Overall, was better than going to a restaurant or other public activities.

DCA is still using busses to 35x—avoid

How frequently is a PE investor realizing a full fund return? I get that it’s hard with timing. But let’s say it’s a $750m fund. Returns 3x MOIC. $2,250M. 20% is $450M. You’re an MD with 2% of the carry pool earning $9M. How often is that $9M paying out? Would depend on a typical rate of capital deployment and fundraising.. let’s say you raise a fund every other year. Average investment is 3-4 years. If you invested the whole fund in 1-2 years. And do this with over 10 years, that’s $45M?
