Find out how long the line is at airport security before you go

Web app or iPhone app WhatsBusy predicts how long it'll take to get through airport security so you can plan your departure accordingly.

CNET - I do not enjoy air travel. Of the many aspects I dislike -- the potential for exploding during takeoff, middle seats in coach, turbulence, the person in front of you fully reclining for the entire flight, the potential for crashing during landing -- there is one I must face before I even leave the house: the anxiety about getting caught in a miles-long security line at the airport and missing my flight. Perhaps for my next trip that requires a flight, WhatsBusy can reduce my anxiety a bit -- at least until I get to the gate and begin to think about getting on the plane.
