Only trouble is I leave next Weds!

    Whaaaaat? I thought the packages were all starting to be shipped this week? Not that I am complaining! haha I hope mine have been released too....I am getting nervous about them not arriving!

    I reckon they will still be with UPS once it is here? Surely they wouldnt pass it on to another carrier? Did you get a confirmation email originally or nothing until you contacted FrontGate?

    They're shipping USPS this year, not UPS. USPS international mail usually goes to the de facto local country carrier once it gets in country.

    Yeah I'd say this is the case also. Judging by most people's experiences so far the domestic service in the US has been very good, which is positive. I've had stuff come from the US and take less than a week and I've had stuff take up to a month. The issue here for me (probably most of us) is that if it's the latter I haven't a hope unless Front Gate bail me out

    Wow, so we've paid $25 to have our tickets shipped by USPS? That's theft if ever I saw it! haha

    Did you email in for your tracking number or did they email directly?

    Yeah I Had to email Bex. Got a swift reply though. No sign of any email even in junk inbox. I guess they started shipping early so arrivals started Monday in the US?

    Yeah pretty sure it will be USPS to Royal Mail once in the UK. Not a bad thing though - even if it needs a sig it's easier to get from them.

    I got my tracking info from Front Gate today after chasing them on the link in jnthnbyl's post. Mine are currently in Chicago! Fingers crossed they will be with us in the next few days in this case!

    Sounds like they got all the W1 passes into the US mail system fairly quickly but sending out tracking numbers doesn't seem to be working all that well so I'll see what happens next week when the W2 ones get sent out.

    Yeah, assumed they'd be using couriers for that kind of $$! Packages seem to go into a customs/quarantine black hole for a few days when they reach Australia Post on the east coast, add in the extra couple of days to get over west and the two Easter public holidays coming up I'm now not as confident they'll get here in time. Anyway, good luck to everyone getting your passes before you leave as an extra hassle you don't really want to deal with when travelling.

    Mine have been stuck in Chicago since 8:47am on Monday! So no progress from there....I am hoping that this is where they are put onto airmail...
    Has anyone else had progression past that?!

    Fingers crossed Al & Mel, although at least Will Call is still an option....

    Mine left Austin 16/3 but hasn't tracked anywhere since. I was hoping it would have come directly across from there but now not so sure if its all going thru Chicago

    Has it been recorded at Chicago? Thats where mine has stopped...its been there since 18th. Hoping that it shows up any day now if it left then, but who knows! They're probably still sat in a sorting office at O'Hare! lol

    Mine left Austin on 16th - not turned up in Chicago or anywhere else since. No direct flights from Austin to the UK, so would have to go somewhere else first.

    I reckon they might not have scanned them all as they are loading.... it seems a bit of a c**k up that only a few people have received the tracking numbers without requesting them first so seems as if the process is a little lax!!

    They've had ages to get this sorted.... I'm a little disappointed if I am honest!

    Have you chased them up sonofhal?

    I don't see the point in chasing. If they haven't turned up before I leave, I'll get in touch and get something sorted for willcall.

    Hopefully they'll start arriving next week and we can all relax a bit. I'm weekend 2 anyway so I'll have an extra week of wondering either way.

    I'd rather not have to sort out something at will call but if it's the only option so be it I suppose....

    Terribly long link but the info helped me - especially:

    " **Priority Mail International only has tracking to major cities and destinations. You cannot track a Flat Rate Envelope or Small Flat Rate Box. "
