Niantic updated the Pokémon GO Known issues page this morning with one point concerning legendary Raid Battles. If you’re down to your last Premier Ball, the Raid Boss will always break free from it, meaning there’s no way you’ll be able to catch the legendary bird you’ve been searching for.
Niantic doesn’t have an immediate fix for the problem at the moment. Instead, it’s providing a better chance for catching Zapdos and/or Lugia by doling out more Premier Balls. Below is the full statement that was posted on the page:

Last Premier Ball fails to capture the Raid Boss
We are actively working to resolve an issue where the Raid Boss always breaks free from the last Premier Ball available. To counteract the effects of this issue, Pokémon GO will temporarily grant an extra Premier Ball in the Bonus Challenge.
