I have had a couple packages sent from USPS around the 20th of June by different people, however none of them have arrived.

I also received a package this morning which was shipped USPS Priority International Flat Rate, which was shipped only on the 26th of June.

In my experience, there usually isn't that much difference in delivery time between Priority Flat Rate and First Class, and they both usually arrive around 7-8 days, so is there some kind of reason why First Class could be taking this long? I'm starting to get a bit worried.

I called my post office here in New Zealand, but they just tell me they can't check anything because First Class doesn't have proper tracking...

There are probably a number of factors coming into play here:

> Location within the US that it is shipping time - this can causing delivery to vary by weeks sometimes

> Chilean Ash - some packages coming from the US at the moment are having week/s added onto the delivery. I have packages coming all the time and I've noticed that stuff sent more than a couple of weeks ago seems to be delayed and items sent from same location later is arriving first
