12/9/16 - Delays
There are still residual delays from Thanksgiving. Last week, many magazines did not come in on time because of the Lufthansa strike. We mailed them on Monday December 5. This week, issues 50 of many magazines also did not arrive on time, but we managed to mail them on Friday December 9. An exception is Laura issue 50, which will be delayed until December 14.
12/2/16 - Holiday delays and pilot strike
Many of our subscribers are experiencing delays after the Thanksgiving holidays. Please keep in mind that the post office was closed and the magazines were mailed later than usual. We are also expecting further delays for magazines we were expecting to mail at the end of this week. They did not arrive in the US because of the Lufthansa pilot strike. This is forcing the airline that transports our magazines to offload them in order to carry mail instead. A lot of issues 49 are affected by this, including Stern, Die Zeit, Das Neue Blatt, Neue Post, and many others. We hope to be able to mail these on Monday December 5th.
11/11/16 - Delays and post office closing
Issues 45 of many of our popular magazines were delayed by a missed flight connection in Germany. They were mailed later than usual, but should arrive in the next few days. Please keep in mind that Friday is Veterans day, and there will be no mail delivery. Also, we won't be able to mail titles like Stern and Die Zeit until Monday. For those who missed Freizeitrevue 44: the issue was unavailable, your subscription has been extended.
11/3/16 - Unavailabilities and delays
Issues 44 of Freizeitrevue, Lisa and Viel Spass were not availble for shipment to the USA because of a logistics error. All subscriptions will be automatically extended to make up for the missing issues.
Issue 45 of Freizeitrevue will be mailed on Friday November 5th instead of Thursday. The issue missed a flight connection in Frankfurt.
10/28/16 - Unavailabilities and Shipping delays
Freizeitrevue, Lisa and Viel Spass issues 44 are not available for shipment to the US at this time. We may still get them sometime next week. If not, we will automatically extend all subscriptions.
Die Zeit, Stern, Lisa, Freizeitwoche and Auto/Motor/Sport did not arrive in the US as scheduled. They can only be mailed out on Monday 10/31.
1/5/15 - Mail Service Standards as of January 2015
On January 5, 2015 the Postal Services announced lower service standards and slower mail delivery. This mail slowdown enables the closure or consolidation of 82 mail processing facilities and threatens up to 15,000 jobs.
