    Well, glad mines arrived before this but one of my mates has his UPS showing as 'exception'. When he enquired about this delivery, he was told its beyond UPS's control... UPS flights aren't operating, or most of them aren't... in Europe anyway.

    Flights wont resume till tomorrow (Saturday)...

    I'd say that safety is key. What's a few more days, right?

    Yeah thats what I told him - they havent banned flights for no reason. After all, by grounding flights - I imagine there losing a lot of money.

    Just created this thread to see how widespread the issue was.... and not to say "OMGGZRRR HOW COULD THEY" :D

    How would you know it id delayed a WEEK? My UPS info says 19th. I expect it may slip a bit, but not a week! At present it is scheduled for 19th, which is earlier than the original 21-22nd.

    I'm sure you'd rather your MBP gets there a week late, rather than being in a plane which engines will fail flying in the volcanic ash. :)

    On a semi-related note, love watching people on the news playing hell at the airport because they reckon it's a load of fuss about nothing. As if some brickie from Kent knows more about what can and cannot bring down his EasyJet plane to Malaga than aviation industry professionals.

    I really don't think anyone is complaining that UPS should be flying, but you have to admit it is still a bummer to have your shipment delayed.

    In the German Apple Store (online) BTO models are getting delayed by 5 - 7 days. Preposterous ! :(

    Damn it! You beat me to it :p

    Some Scottish people are hilarious, lol. Sucks to be you man.
    For those that don't know what volcanic ash does to a plane, watch this and the following parts.
