KLM B739 - B763 Question

Will the KLM B739, replace the B763 on high density routes like AMS-LHR and AMS CDG as soon as all the B763's are gone ?

Switching 763s tot 739s on short-haul is peanuts. I know there's the morning flight to LHR that they change often from 763 to 739 and sometimes you might see a 763 doing FCO, CDG, MXP or something like that.
But once you look at 'longer' routes, ofcourse a 739 can not take as much freight as the bigger 763 can....

the morning 767 AMS-LHR will stay as a 767 i believe this is because of the cargo coming from Accra on it way to London via Amsterdam. a minimum of 15% of each acc-ams are connection on other KL flights to LHR
Next destinations, Suarabaya, beirut, paris, Accra

But what will happen when the 767 left the fleet in the next few years ?
Will the A330 take the morning LHR service ?
