The American Airlines website is showing a possible glitch involving codeshare flights with British Airways between Montreal and Europe.
The Premium Economy class flights are being priced the same as Economy class, which is unusual.
It's pretty common for the Premium Economy flights to run $1200-$1500 roundtrip or more. You can read more about flying Premium Economy with British Airways here.
Another interesting aspect is that dates around late December and over New Years may be available to certain destinations.
You can also upgrade from Premium Economy to Business Class for 12,500 AA miles each way.
Availability for travel
Late October 2016 to January 2017. Since it's the off-season, you may want to focus on Southern Europe (warmer).
