    Can watches on these plans still make it in time to us on Friday?

    Maybe if you're near their second destination of Kentucky. Other than that it's too close to call, hence the emails of death which I have received.

    38mm SG Sport 3:04am Eastern no charge, still processing.

    Hopefully this will allow many to get a Saturday delivery and rock their watches on the weekend still. I see a lot of negativity, so hopefully this will positively charge some people like pink slime on the Statue of Liberty in Ghostbusters 2! Lol

    Yes, the planes would likely continue on to Louisville, be sorted and then put on planes to their final destinations to arrive Friday morning.

    Are the ones being delivered via overnight shipping not already in the US? I do not think ones coming from China today will be delivered tomorrow.

    That is the positive thinking I am talking about. Forget the Debbie Downers and focus on what we do best. Tracking mysterious planes with possible precious cargo of Apple Watches.

    One of my previous preorders from Apple, I think iPhone 6, was in Anchorage on Thursday, showed up on my doorstep the following day.

    what is the first thing that happens on our accounts when the planes land (if our watches are on them? credit card charges?

    has that been happening after they land in anchorage or at their further destination (Louisville, etc.)?

    I am optimistic, I live in Kentucky (hour from Louisville) and an hour from Mt. Juliet (Apple Distribution center)

    I didn't receive an e-mail and I ordered at 12:03AM PST, ordered SS42MMBSB. Planes came into Louisville last night (about five from Anchorage)

    ----------

    Generally credit card charges, then switches to preparing for shipping. There has been flukes in the past though where items will magically appear on your doorstep, like it got by passed in the system. I don't know how, but that's regarding iPhone releases

    I got the EOD but I'm still somewhat hopeful, I remember the iPhone 4 on VZW release, I preordered and didn't get any sort of shipment update until the middle of the night Thursday, showed up the next afternoon. And if it doesn't then oh well, I guess it will have to be a late bday present to myself haha.

    I haven't thought about that possibility. Anyone else want to speculate?

    It's strange that I haven't seen anyone speak of FedEx planes or delivery notifications on this launch. I've seen a lot of people say they are coming from both FedEx and UPS, but every bit of evidence has been from UPS.

    All evidence I have seen so far points to UPS too, but if they got jammed up for the launch window, who is to say they can't enlist FED EX?

    From what I've seen, UPS for the Watch itself, fedex for accessories.

    The flights to Louisville arrive between 12:30 am and 1:30 am, they then have to be sorted and on the flights that go out to destinations cities which start around 2:30 am. So it is possible if no delays, but I am not counting on it anymore.

    Apple rep said the watches are not made in China but USA rather. Not sure if she is correct or not, but if so we are wasting time tracking these planes from China.
