CO's 752 and 762 are of roughly the same capacity
I would doubt that they put this on the EWR-BCN route to accomodate a larger party (as the 762 is actually slightly smaller by 1 seat) but instead (1) due to high BF load-unlikely, (2) MX swap or (3) cargo demand.

Quoting Traindoc (Thread starter): Was the A/C switch due to the need for more PAX or was it due to a MX issue?
There's a misconception about how big the 767-200 really is, in CO's configurations their 757-200s have 1 more seat than their 767-200s. So obviously it's not a capacity issue since going from a 757 to a 767-200 is a capacity reduction (albeit 1 seat).
