Premium Economy award code bucket question + no longer available

I made the mistake of not booking an award yesterday, and now it's gone from BOS-LHR in PE. How often do these reappear? It was for May 2020 and 17,500 p/p + taxes.

As well, I was trying to read up on the fare code buckets and have not found a clear answer on expertflyer, etc. What fare bucket should I set an alert for a PE award?

Experienced AA/WN flyer but Virgin/DL are new to me...

What time do seats become available? I can see reward seats available in just over 331 days but they are not bookable yet. I know for BA its either midnight or 1am in the UK. Is it the same for Virgin Atlantic?

If you are seeing reward seats in the booking engine then they are bookable

vs does not release rewards at any specific time as far as Iím aware

That is not entirely true. If you do a flexible date search you can see a few days beyond the 331 day window. The system will show you if any reward seat are going to released on those days.

Iíve had my eye on some rewards seats from LAX to LHR on 22 August next year (331 days from today). Iíve known for a few days that Upper Class and Premium Economy seats were going to be released for that day but (in answer to my own question) I was not able to book them until 5:00am this morning.
