789 may be too small to operate this route. I don't see BR wanting to go 2 daily at JFK if they cite high landing fees as a problem.

Premium Economy is really not marketable in short haul, and the feasibility of it being in long haul is not very good unless they are like ANA or JAL where they can just rotate the same aircraft on the same routes. Each time the plane is in short haul it's basically an Economy seat for tiered members. I would expect BR wanting more available seats for sale (especially that 789 has less seats than 333).
