Good question, The early 300's (not the -600) all used the CF-6 (dont ask me the specific variant). So that answers the SAA A300 question I think. The A310 (both -200 and -300) offered improved CF-6 variants and a PW 405? engine as well. The modernized A300-600(R) offered both newer versions of the CF-6 as well as a PW engine. now to the airlines
KLM A310-200:GE CF-6
CSA A310-300:GE CF-6
sorry thats all i know

Air Seychelles does not have that A300 any more, and they don't have the 757 either, only B763 and B73G. The 757 was replaced by a B762, which was replaced by a B763. The A300 was operated back in the '80s.
