a great source for aircraft types on routings is oag.com
Just search by route....you have to know which routes are LIKELY to use the 753, but since CO only has a few (3 or 4?) 753's, you could probably find most of the routings quickly. For the CO 753 routes, I would search under EWR-FLL/MCO/IAH/SFO/LAX/MIA.
They might use the 753 on different routings on weekends than weekdays.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Actually, I think CO only uses their 753's down to Florida at peak times such as spring break of Christmas.
You have a better chance of finding a 739 flight down there over a 753 this summer as the 753 has moved on to serve hnigh density routes. I think CO has one 739 flight to FLL from EWR a day. Usually, i fly EWR-FLL however recently I have been flying JFK-FLL for certain reasons, not like jetBlue had anything to do with it.
OAG.com is a very good source for what you need.
Between the 739 and the 752, go with the 752... I have been on both, the 753 and the 739 and if anything, the 739 is just as tight as their old MD80's. If pitch is not an issue, try the 739 because it is new and is sleek and has big overhead bins (chuckle).

The 757-300s are moved to IAH during summer months. During Winter season they operate out of EWR. The 737-900s are out of all of the hubs presently. I have flown the 757-300 three times between IAH and MSY- twice on the 7:00a flight that was mentioned in an earlier post. They are currently on flights from IAH to: DEN, MSY, MCO, LAS, LAX, CUN. There is also an odd flight listed: CO4930 to MCI only on August 16th. For the month of September the 753 will operate EWR-LAS.
