The 76C is similar in premium capacity to the 75K (28J vs. 30J) and adds about 70 Y seats with the same cabin products. Aside from the 757s, the 76C should be the last non-Polaris aircraft in the longhaul fleet, so it would make sense for UA to deploy them elsewhere, especially given the additional WB frames coming on property over the next two years.
This seems reasonable, especially as the 75Ks like to sell out in the back.
