British Airways uses either a B747 or a B777 (you can access the seat maps here). In these planes the Premium Economy cabin has a 2-4-2 configuration, featuring a slightly wider and more reclinable seat than Economy class.

Booking example:

Several OTAs show plenty of availability for departures in May/June. For example, a screenshot from Kayak for a June booking:

For those looking to use a travel agent for the booking, here is the fare construction from ItaSoftware:

Mileage accrual:

Crediting these flights to any of the One World member airlines, or to Alaska Airlines (BAEC partner) will earn you a total of 7342 miles (excluding elite bonuses).

 

Conclusion

Good price for Premium Economy for a medium-haul flight. You’ll be traveling in a smaller, less densely populated cabin for about USD 100-150 more than in Economy (that’s good). The only drawbacks I can think of are BA’s signature “hit and miss” inconsistent service and having to transfer in Heathrow, a traveler’s nightmare.
