    I am hoping to sell some eggs. I was plaining on bubble wraping the eggs individually. do they need to be two dayed aired or is first class ok?

    I do priority mail too but sometimes I wonder if first class would be just as good. From what I've learned, the mail is pretty fast if you are in an adjoining state, but I do priority just in case.

    It's my understanding that with airmail they load the packages using a conveyor belt. When the package gets to the end/top of the conveyor, it then "falls" into the cargo area, and is picked up to stack. Also, I would worry about pressure changes in the cargo hold while in the air at whatever thousand feet.

    What kind of eggs are you selling?

    Priority is supposed to be 2-3 days, and most first class gets there in 3 days as well. The only difference is if the priority doesn't get there in 3 days, you can get shipping reimbursed. With first class it just gets there when it gets there.
