I was checking flights to and from Amsterdam out of EWR for December 30th and the new equipment is going to be the Airbus A-330!!! I have to say i am going to miss the 763 service...but i am definitly looking forward to seeing a new A330 fly over!!!

Don't worry, you will still get to see the B767 at EWR. It's a mix of both. I posted this on another forum a while back:
KLM will start using Airbus A330-200 on the AMS-EWR run eff. 02OCT05
Operates Sun/Tue/Thu/Fri/Sat (others days are 763) arriving EWR 1145am, dep. 630pm

Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 2): I guess it's trending toward the truth that if you want to fly 767/777 to europe from EWR, you need to go CO
Given the choice between KL and CO, I know which airline I would opt for, and it has nothing to do with which aircraft they fly.
On a serious note though, there is no shortage of Boeing widebodies across the pond from EWR, here are a few that come to mind.
British Airways 777 to London(LHR) (3 times a day)
Virgin Atlantic 744 to London(LHR)
Malaysian 744 to Stockholm
Air India 744 to Paris(CDG)
Alitalia 763 to Milan(MXP)
Alitalia 772 to Rome(FCO)
LOT 763 to Warsaw
I am sure there are more, these are the ones that came to mind.
