Probably about 50-50 as at least half should be in service by then!
I don't think that's entirely accurate, only half of the 3-class 763 will be in service. And since UA is not dedicating the Polaris 763 to any routes or cities, any 2-class 763 is possible. If I were to guess, I would say the odds are 5-6 out of 26 chance (# of 2-class 763, Polaris and BE lieflat). Also, based on recent flight patterns of the Polaris 763, they appear to be flying mostly out of IAH and EWR.
There's also a chance the plane might switch to a 3-class 763.
