    Looking to see if this has happened to anyone else...

    I ordered a MBA 1.8/80 and I've been following this forum for the last 2+ weeks just like everyone else. Just like a bunch of you, my MBA left Shanghai on Feb 4th and scheduled for a "Feb 12th" delivery (which is wrong).

    Well, to make a long story short, it arrived at LAX on Feb 6th early in the morning. The tracking results had not been updated since it left Indianapolis so I called FedEx. They told me it would be out for delivery Thursday Feb 7th by 10:30am. It never came – called FedEx and they said it had not been updated since it arrived at LAX. They tried to run a "trace route" and they cannot locate it. It's now being "researched" by the lost and found dept. I think it's lost and found its way into someone's trunk.

    I called Apple and they were very supportive and helpful. We'll see how much so if it is confirmed "lost" by FedEx.

    This is frustrating beyond the pre-order vs. pick up at the store scenarios others have mentioned here. It may be another 2 - 3 weeks before I even get my MBA!

    Hope it doesn't end up that way.

    I'm sure its in a misplaced envelope somewhere - that's all.;)

    I'd give it a couple more days to see if it shows up, then call Apple and cancel your order, then go to the store and buy one. Sorry about the bad luck of fedex losing it.

    Sorry to hear you're having problems... but at least it's not a case of them delivering it and then it disappeared. No delivery = it's their problem to solve, and someone owes you an MBA or your money.

    Is it FedEX ground? The Same happened to me with my 30" ACD.

    After FedEX officially reported it lost (after much harassment from me), I called Apple, explained the situation, and they shipped me a new one overnight.

    Don't wait for FedEX to find it. It was most likely stolen and it isn't coming back. Call Apple right away and get yourself a new one.

    Random question (I would PM this to you, but you don't have PMs turned on): Do you know someone named Jocelyn?

    Mine got delivered to the Apple Store!

    Sorry to hear about your missing MBA. FedEx kinda sucks!

    FedEx accidently delivered my 1.8 HDD to the Apple Store in Rancho Cucamonga, CA!

    It went out for delivery, but must have gotten mixed up with the store's shipment. They signed for it, and I got confirmation it was delivered. So, I called and got the address where it was delivered and realized that was the Apple Store ... Really weird. Luckily they noticed it wasn't addressed to them and returned it to FedEx (at least they didn't sell it). Unfortunately, I had to wait at the FedEx Distribution Center until the delivery truck came back late that evening, but at least I got it.

    Absolute craziness!
