Of the two, probably the Max10, as the all Y config of 230 is the closest to the current 235Y of the B752's (max 9 is up to 220)

If they still made the B767 (non freight) now, it would be worth considering. the B763 was the most common and variants ranged between 290 and the exit limit of 351, which would have put it on par with the A330's they lease in.
As for current WB aircraft, A330 or B787, Jet2 don't need the range they have so would be happy to stuff as many seats in as possible, so you'd be looking at around the 350 mark. However this does tie in with a previous comment that 1 or 2 of these going tech, would have serious repercussions. so unless they had a large order and keeping a few as spares if needed, i'd avoid the Wide-bodies for now
