My flights on Mondays are 8:30 (boarding 7:45) with TSA pre-check and I get to the airport at 7:30. I think you’ll be fine getting there at 5:45 bc the airport is still dead before 6:30am

DCA hasn't been that bad. I'd only give it second thought if you're traveling Monday morning, otherwise you'll be through security and at the gate in 15 minutes.

I also have to check 2x car seats to gotta spare a few min for that too

Do you want to board right at 6 with the kids? Would not recommend lol. I think you should be fine getting to the airport at 430 earliest

Gotcha. Yeah assuming 630 board for you I’d say 530 is probably plenty of time

Baggage has not been friendly for early morning flights at DCA recently (understaffed so it is taking forever). I used to allow like 15 minutes for that, but I almost missed my flight last time because it was 40+ minutes (which is absurd). I would buffer in a few extra minutes for that bag drop off.

Omg so different from the dumpster fire they use to be. Now they offer you wine as soon as you enter the airport and will give your kids piggy back rides, im sure you can get one as well if you ask nicely. This is not even the best part DCA flies in the finest steak from Japan for all of its fliers. Lol jk btw They're still the hassle they use to be except now a lot of the restaurants are closed.

Pre check lines have been universally short at DCA recently. But I will warn the construction is screwing up traffic pretty badly so you should add 10 for that plus 10 for the luggage delays.

With TSA pre-check I try to get there 5 minutes before boarding starts. Security should take 5 minutes that early in the AM, then a minute or two to walk to your gate.
