    As it happens, with all of that Volcanic ash in the sky, all air traffic over Europe has ceased.
    Will this have any effect on any packages currently in transit?

    Just wondering.

    Yes, the shipments to Europe and possibly other countries will be delayed for as long as that ash cloud remains.
    ShopTemp already reported some delays with DHL shipments [​IMG]
    force majeure!

    they could also send it by plane to the regions that are near europe, but dont have the vulcanic cloud and then send it by train or truck XD then they might be one or two days slower than a plane but it would arrive faster than the cloud would subside

    Wouldn't that cost extra though? :/

    I'm in Vancouver, Canada. I can wait for mine. I have Pokemon HeartGold to tie me over until then.

    Well, my R4 order shipped 9 days ago and it still hasn't arrived.
    Either it does take at least 2 weeks for free shipping, or that blasted ashcloud has delayed my order. >:\

    Edit: Accidentally posted an unfinished post with a keyboard shortcut? Wat?
