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).
BR has only done well on PE in SIN, SGN, BKK, PEK, and PVG. This is why these markets maintain PE service. The 789 is not fit for any of these markets as the J count is too low. BR really jammed as many seats into these 789s as possible to move it as close to the A333 as possible, evidenced by the placement of the closets, their galley sizes, and lavatory placements.
