In an NY Times article about chronic flight delays, author Jeff Bailey notes a useful website where you can check out whether the flight you’re interested in is regularly on-time or late. At the same site, you can also see how long the typical wait times are at the various security gates of any airport at all times of day. These are just a couple of functions offered by the site.
Another great website is Seat Guru, where you can find detailed seating maps of the different models flown by the most common domestic and international carriers. It warns you of important information like “seat does not recline,” “armrests immovable,” or “difficult to view the movie.”
