The error lies in that you listed 762s on some routes that are flown by the 764s. My guess is that you looked at the designation '767'--Continental list the 767-200 as 762, the 767-400 as 764, and the Pacific configured 767-400s (76Hs) as 767. The 762 does not fly into the pacific at all.

Continental is currently getting 14 block hour days of utilization out of their 767's and 777's. While they might not buy, I would think they'd be looking for leased aircraft too fill in the gaps. More likely, the 762's will come off the domestic routes to go overseas, and 757's would backfill for 767's on some of the European routes. CO has sworn off aircraft purachases for at least the next 2-3 years...
