What does Y, J & P stand for? I know that they stand for the different classes being Economy (Y), Business (J) and First (P), but what do the letters themselves mean? Like why did they choose Y for Economy? What does it stand for?

I remember TG giving an explanation once that 'P' stood for premium and used that notation for First Class. Similar the 'C' comes from Club. I'd love to be educated as to where the J and Y notations came from.
