Other than BA, China Yunnan Airlines is the only other airline that uses RR engine on its 767-300. Personally, I don't understand why Qantas doesn't use RR engine for its 767 fleet, since they already standardized on RR for their 747 fleet. It would save them a lot of money.

As its turned out it is better that Qantas doesnt have is 767-300 fleet powered by RR. Qantas now has 3 747-400 acft 1 from Asiana and 2 from Malaysian
that are GE powered same as the 767 acft.

I have not heard of that being done on jets before. I makes sense though. I remember reading Len Morgans article in flying magazine a few years back and he said that the did the same thing at Braniff when he worked there. Except it was R-2800 engines and they swaped them from Convairs to their DC-6's.
