Best WAP sites for mobile phones?

Looking for the best wap sites for traveling ...

Right now I use mobile.alaskaair.com to help me check flight status on AS. I'm wondering if there are any other wap sites out there that will better help me with flight status for other airlines?

Here are some other sites I use personally:

http://mobile.yahoo.com
http://mobile.msn.com
http://wap.switchboard.com
http://wap.hollywood.com/#MainMenu
http://wap.espn.com
http://wap.t-zones.co.uk
http://www.mybus.org/metrokc/wml/help/find.wml
http://sushiseattle.com/mobile
http://wap.xe.com
http://www.telcodata.us/index.wml
http://wap.google.com
http://wap.zagat.com

Great thread.

Here is what i have setup for my tagtag.

http://wireless.nwa.com
http://wap.oa.yahoo.com/ -> Main yahoo site with links to weather,movies,mail etc
http://wap.sportsline.com -> espn gets hammered a lot so cbs is much faster for scores.
http://wireless.mapquest.com/wml/ -> wap mapquest
http://www.superpages.com/ -> Very very handy (yes its wap also)
http://wap.hollywood.com/#TimesTixZip -> Movie timings


A very cool thing to do is open an account on tagtag. ( www.tagtag.com) and create your own wap page where you add all your favorite wap links.
so on your phone you basically access www.tagtag.com/mywebpage and access all these cool wap sites by just browsing so you dont have to type anything after you have created your links.

Thanks all - so there is no all encompasing WAP site that checks flight status - so i don't have to go to a specific carrier's wap site, i can just go to the all encompasing site?

Thanks

When travelling in Houston on the roads:

traffic.houstontranstar.org/mobile

Very cool to see real-time speed maps and even message board messages.

You can look up all kinds of train connections in Europe here. When you open the page it appears in German, but you can change the language to English in the Menu.
