First-class mail from US to Switzerland

Has anyone received a first class mail from US in Switzerland? How long does it take to get here? I want some letters to be forwarded to me from US, and wouldn't like to burden my friends there to send them to in fedex, or pricier USPS options.

I think it usually takes between 5 - 10 business days.

I would agree. Mail usually gets to me from the East Coast of the US in that exact range -- sometimes just under a week to 10 days.

A couple weeks ago I received a letter from my father who lives in California four days after he posted it! All-time record - a letter usually takes a week, not more. Funny thing was, he sent each of his kids a letter at the same time - my letter arrived before my sister received hers - and she lives in Montana.

Thanks all for the replies. I wanted to make sure since it takes usually a month for the international mail to reach India.
