According to the photo database, TED fleet only consists of one airplane, N495UA. Is it really true? If it is, what happens if it can't make the flight? Do they take a regular United airplane to replace it?

1 aircraft has been painted in TED livery for promotional purposes. it is in service, however, in UA mainline. i'd imagine more aircraft are being painted, and they may also spend some time in UA mainline service before all of the TED aircraft cabins must be reconfigured for the TED rollout.

C'mon people... Surely we can all figure this out, right? In order to have an entire fleet of planes in correct livery appear on the day of inception, they would have to either 1) have dozens of painted planes sitting around under large tarps so no one can see them, or 2)paint a large number of planes very fast the night before.
If Delta can't get their fleet repainted in 6 years, you are going to expect UAL is going to want to get started on the TED planes as soon as possible.
