so many websites - helpful and not so much

I was trying to put together a list of websites that are available to frequent flyers that either help our travel plans, entertain us, or simply just waste our time.

www.flyertalk.com (the ultimate resource of all things flying)
www.united.com
www.untied.com
www.expedia.com (dream maps)
www.travelocity.com (fare listing)
www.travelstoremaker.com
www.seatguru.com
www.seatexpert.com
www.seatmap.com (sadly deceased)
www.jetphotos.net
www.airliners.net
www.airlinemeals.net
www.jonnyjet.com
http://gc.kls2.com (great circle mapper - to maximize mileage on mileage runs)

I was curious if there are any other websites that are frequently used by other flyertalkers.

Cheers

Do a search on seatguru.com, there have been several threads listing some great alternatives to it and some other good sites.
