SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 15, 2005, the Postal Service published in the Federal Register (70 FR 54493) a notice of proposed changes in international postage rates. We requested comments by October 17, 2005, and received one comment from a private individual.

The private individual asked why the 1-ounce airmail letter-post rate is less than the rate for aerogrammes to Canada and Mexico. He envisions situations where customers might purchase aerogrammes at the full rate and alter them into airmail letter-post to secure the lower price. His solution is to print another aerogramme at the letter-post rate.

We agree that aerogramme users could possibly alter their aerogrammes to receive the lower rate. Because of the relatively low volume of aerogrammes worldwide and the relatively low potential cost savings on each altered aerogramme, however, we do not believe this practice will be common or will result in serious revenue loss. In fact, the letter-post rate to Canada and Mexico is currently below the aerogramme rate, and this rate relationship has not caused the problem noted by the private individual. In addition, printing and stocking two aerogrammes with different postage rates would be costly. We note that enclosures are not permitted in aerogrammes. We have been advised by the private individual that mailers may try to send aerogrammes with enclosures, and we will monitor the situation and take action if necessary.
