Is there reason to believe that a future A321XLR operated by AC would be equipped with lie-flat seats?

They seem perfectly fine to fly a Y/PY product over the ocean with the 7M8.

Premium routes like YYZ-LHR will have the demand to continue commanding multiple widebodies per day, but new, currently uneconomical or marginal routes that might be served by an A321XLR may not justify a true international J product.
