I know CO and its European routes have been discussed many times, but I could not find anything about AMS.
Is Continental very profitable on its IAH-AMS Route? CO flies 764s every day from IAH and 762s three days a week (mostly around the weekend). But every time I look at CO's seat maps for upcoming flights, the aircraft always seem half-full. So why put another 762 on that route? Could it just be the low-season?
ALSO, I am flying IAH to AMS (CO46) on November 18 (this Saturday) and my flight appears half-full as well. Currently, there is no one sitting next to me (20L, window). Should I expect a fuller flight than the current map is telling me, or will I have plenty of room to stretch out? Thanks!!!
My return flight is CO 59 (762) on November 20th. And sorry if this similar topic was recently posted.

I just checked the bookings on COAIR.com for CO46 on 11/18, and it will be much more than half full. I can't disclose exact totals, but J class is almost sold out, and Y is as well. I would expect that by Saturday their will be very few empty seats.

Not all passengers choose their seat when they buy their ticket.
It is very hard to tell how full a flight is by the number of seats left to choose from online. Most of the seats are allocated at check in.
I prefer to be crazy and happy rather than normal and bitter
