There is no correct answer as engine type selection is dependant on an individual airline's operating environment. Therfore, a GE powered engine may be more suitable for one company whereas a P&W or RR engine would better suit another.
Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule: Korean Air and Thai International operated 747's and Airbuses with just about every engine type possible- one can only imagine a certain amount of bribery was at play.
