My MacBook Pro Retina 2014 unit (which was also bought in BTB) is affected by the staingate issue. I brought my laptop in for repair at the Bonifacio Highstreet Service Center. Upon initial assessment, they said that the replacement screen will come in around Febuary as quote "Apple is holding the release of the screens". My service request has been open since January 6, 2018 and all my attempts to get an update were fruitless. No one was responding via email. I tried calling in February and March but the guy named Jonathan kept saying that Apple was holding the release of the replacement screen and no estimate date of arrival can be given. I then contacted Apple Support online to have this issue be escalated and only then the local service center started working on this repair. That's the only time I got an update that "a Technical Engineer has been assigned to diagnose and service your Apple device". Disappointing that my case has only been flagged as an "exception" once I raised this issue to Apple Support and magically the unit will be delivered next week. Waiting for 4 months is unacceptable given that no updates were given regarding the movement of the replacement screen.
