Now there's no need to wonder whether you'll have access to Twitter or Facebook during your next flight.
Hipmunk, the travel website and smartphone app that lets travelers search for a flight by cost, departure, date or agony, on Thursday announced that its iPhone and iPad apps now show which flights have in-flight Wi-Fi.
From the "hippest" flight and hotel retailer to the most impressive itinerary juggler, Gadgetbox editor Wilson Rothman and msnbc.com senior travel editor Joy Jernigan discuss fresh and favorite tools to keep you in motion this summer.
The company in June had added Wi-Fi to its website search results − with a caveat. Search results say that Wi-Fi is available under normal circumstances, but a malfunction or plane swap is always possible.
Some airline websites also indicate whether a flight is Wi-Fi-enabled.
The news follows Hipmunk's announcement Wednesday that it is venturing into video advertising. It's new spot, which it aims to air late-night on Comedy Central, is a spoof on cute animal Internet memes.
According to Hipmunk, "We thought we’d see what some of the Internet’s most famous memes would look like with humans instead of adorable animals."
We'll let you be the judge.
