So what does this mean for an eBay seller in the USA? If you are shipping internationally to this region of Europe, your packages may be caught in the backlog and your customer's order may be sitting on a plane somewhere on the ground.
Keep this in mind if you get any "where is my order" type emails from customers to whom you shipped this week. Be prepared to explain the possible delay. Your international customers may not have made the connection that mail is on those grounded planes, too.
