    which tag is correct?

    Dear Teachers

    We know that "will" can be used to make PRESENT predictions when we are pretty certain about something.
    For instance;

    A: I'll give Bob a call now.
    B: No don't bother, he'll be having lunch now: try in a little while.

    In the above sentence if we are to put a tag question what would it be, I mean is it,

    he'll be having lunch now, won't he?
    or
    he'll be having lunch now, isn't he?

    Are both possible or is it just the former?

    Please be kind enough to let me know.

    Kind Regards
    Udara

    The first is fine but your cases dont match in the second

    he is having lunch now, isn't he
