Seeking recommendations from experts.

Wanted to include Konkan Railways as part of my short India trip so I'm travelling from Kochi to Goa with wife and a 4 yr old kid.

I have some fond memories of travelling by First Class Sleeper Cabin with my family when I was young so I wanted my kiddo to experience the same. So I'm looking at 1st AC.

Trivandrum Rajdhani has LHB coaches but has a WL of 1 on my date of travel

Ernakulam-Nizamuddin Duronto has Hybrid LHB coaches with 100% availability (22 seats) on my date of travel.

Travel date is fixed (Late Feb) as hotels and air tickets are already done for Kochi/Alleppey and Goa.

1. Is the ride in Hybrid LHB coaches much worse than the LHB coaches?
2. What are the chances of WL 2 and 3 being confirmed in the Trivandrum Rajdhani
3. Duronto arrives in MAO at 12 noon, 2 hrs after Rajdhani, so I'm assuming I will get more scenic views?
4. If I book 2 seats and request a cabin in Duronto, and if they have plenty of free seats, which it looks as of now, will I be assigned a cabin or will they stick me into a Coupe? Or should I purchase a full ticket for my kid saying he's 5 and hope they'll give me a cabin for just our family?
