United equipment change

When a carrier makes an equipment change on a flight 6 months out, how likely is it to change again - back to original plane?

I have no clue, except to say that 6 months is an eternity in airline time.

in 6 months they are likely to change the equipment AND the schedule . . . more than once.

Equipment is never guaranteed. If you are concerned about changing to a smaller aircraft with fewer seats in first class resulting in your being downgraded, one strategy is to reserve a seat toward the front of the cabin. If you are in row 5 and the new plane has only 4 rows in FC, you're more likely to wind up in cattle class. It's no sure bet, as sometimes a higher elite status passenger will be given priority, but it can help.

If you tell us the flight and route, then we may be able to tell if it's closer to 36.5% or 37.5%.
