See below in the expanded wiki for the list of the reconfigured aircraft.

December 3, 2015 Alaska announced a reconfiguration of its fleet.

Also, pitch in the First Class cabin will be increased from 36" to 42" providing a significantly enhanced experience for those customers.

First -900 is N319AS. Should return to service in the second half of January.

The timeline for the -800's was just shy of four months. The -900/-900ER's will take just over a year.

You can find the scheduled tail number of your flight here:
https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/as123
(replace as123 with as[your flight num])
However aircraft swaps are frequent, even up to the last hour.

Ended up being academic since we got a T-90m upgrade, but this flight was on a yet-to-be-converted -900. Glad for the upgrade - and that I didn't play the odds by switching out of row 17.

Looks like we'll be on 464 this morning. Expertflyer has row 34 blocked out, I'll report back after the flight, if it takes off.

Update: 464 has been refitted.

The Wiki needs an update. Anyone have precise info? Are there any 739s left in service in the old config?

Website still says Premium Class will be available on all 737-900s by Spring 2018 but we don't know what Spring means

All 900/900ERís are now configured with Premium Class. New deliveries will come without it from boeing but will be reconfigure before entering service.

Why not do it at the factory?
