Royal Mail have finally clarified Small Packet vs Letter for Airmail.

http://www.royalmail.com/sites...0February%202013.pdf

Unfortunately anything over 5mm thick is now deemed a small packet Mad

Which means something (at current prices) which did go for £1.28 will have to in some cases go for £3.30.

Wow, 5mm is pretty drastic.

Ours is 3/4", so there is some room for envelopes with a topload to make it as a letter.

For domestic mail in the UK we have three size rates- Letter, Large Letter and Packet.

The maximum you can have for Letter is 5mm so I guess that's where they got it from.
