The CO reservations site is now showing a 777 for the IAH-AMS-IAH flights......this route really "took off" as they say. Interesting that CO originally planned a 764 for this route and went with the 762 after the downturn in airline traffic; and the result, a 777 is required!
Hopefully, this will encourage CO to open more transatlantic routes out of EWR, IAH and CLE. Possibly a CLE-AMS flight will be announced soon?
CO must have an "extra" 777 available to do this......any info?

AMS could use more 777s. Although with the KLM 777s arriving next year...
As for the success of the route, KLM has been running a daily 747 service for like ages now to IAH. I guess most of them were 747Combis though.
