It's not a guarantee that you'll get this plane, though. I was on a refurbed 757 with seat back IFE flying from Maui to LAX last year, so it can be luck of the draw.
The good news is that the three remaining 75Vs are due to be withdrawn from use by the end of Q1 2016. So hopefully by Q2 2016, the odds of being on a non-AVOD equipped 757 will be almost non-existant, as there will only be a few non-refurbished birds flying then, as the mods are being done in earnest during the slower winter schedule.
