You may not be able to predict precisely which flights will get stuck on the tarmac, but Delaycast may be able to narrow it down for you. From Wired:
It's a tool that allows users to track delays by airport, airline or specific flight. Sure, you can get historical delay info from lots of different sources, including the airlines themselves, but Delaycast is taking it up a notch -- it's using predictive modeling to anticipate future flight delays.
Definitely worth checking out.
And when you finish cursing the airlines for delays, security theater, and the rest of all that makes flying now such a joy, remember: Bash Airlines All You Want, But Flying Still Beats Driving.
