753 with 12 F seats?

I'm booked on CO1749 from FLL-IAH on Jan 19th. The first weird thing I noticed while reviewing my reservation online was that my itinerary says a 752, but the coach seatmap is consistent with a 753. The timetable also says that it's operated by a 753.

The second odd thing is that first class only has 3 rows with a 2x2 configuration. Has anyone ever seen this on a 753 before? Is it possible this aircraft is BF equipped?

There is no BF on this aircraft. CO just wanted to put more coach seats in so they added 3 coach rows and took out 3 First Class rows.

CO has been taking out three rows of F and replacing it with more rows of Y. They did this because these planes fly leisure routes with many Y pax and almost all EUA upgrades (or mileage upgrades) for the F pax - in other words, they were losing lots of revenue from possible Y seats.

Just got back from a trip with these planes. My upgrade didnt clear on the EWR-FLL route, even though I'm platinum and was on a B fare (hardly discount)! The chance at an upgrade on these planes is impossible.
