In , EVA Air was the first to introduce Evergreen Class later renamed to Elite Class, and later renamed to Premium Economy Class and had since become the first airline to offer this class of service in the world. In some ways, Premium Economy class has become a standard reflecting what Economy class was like 40 years ago or more ; as an example the seat pitch of United Airlines' Economy Class was 36 inches back in the s, the same seat pitch as most airlines' Premium Economy these days. As of , the term is not standardized among airlines, and varies significantly between domestic and international flights and between low-cost or regional airlines and other airliners. At the other extreme, some extra legroom seats in Economy Class, with the same service and seat model, are also marketed as an enhanced Economy class in some airlines.
