    I have one on the same shipment as yours.

    I won't worry about it. If it is in Louisville, KY, you should get it tomorrow (assuming your location has Saturday delivery).

    [If you get a chance, go see the UPS nightly operations there - it is an impressive sight. (Somewhat similar to FedEx in Memphis.)]

    Mine was enroute from Lexington to NYC when suddenly it changed to Korea. It'll be here tomorrow. It's NOT in Korea.

    We want to create a page on Wikipedia that outlines the events of the Korean Flight of Doom. Please comment below if you were affected.

    Hopefully we will have a happy ending... or a reason for Apple NEVER to use UPS again.

    For now...

    Browse down to the "Timeline" section: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incheon_International_Airport

    I bet most of us never heard of this airport... until this week.

    I'm on the 2010 Korean Flight of Doom - although, the last hour or so has been fun. Misery loves company, I guess.

    We are the victims of the logistics of trying to ship that many items over a few days, we got stuck at the end of the line, and there was no room for error.

    What really is the salt in the wound is the (really odd) scheduling of a Saturday release, normally it would be just a day delay, but this will effectively be much more.

    Oh well, at least we have each other.

    Hence the need for a Wikipedia entry, and for the nostalgia sake!

    This is simply the system failing to update. Our iPads are not in Korea people. Please stop making all these thread about the Korean flight. It's retarded.

    UPS and its native web tracking does not provide all of the details, go to packagetrackr.com and you will see that you did leave China last night on a flight that stopped in Korea. And we either fell off the plane there, or got stuck in Alaska a few hours later
