Looking at Flight wait times on a Map

TechnoSailor- Aaron Brazell posted this link on Twitter for flightwait.com.

Green 0-15 minute delay
Yellow 15-60 minute delay
Red 1-2 hour delay
Black More than 2 hour delay

It is a good Google MAps mash up with Data provided by FAA. Very simple functionality - search by airport or by zip code. I put in my zip code and it did not ask me for my preferred airport (BWI) but defaulted to IAD.

If I am at airport and nothing to do I would be browsing this site

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
