Quoting tdscanuck (Reply 5): I pulled the data off the Boeing Orders & Deliveries page...note that it was only for the 747-400, not the -400F, -400ER, or -400ERF. If you roll them all together, the GE may well be on top.
I see. The reason why I said that is because I know of 3 carriers that ordered 744 with PW engines, thats CA, UA and KE. From my experience, SQ, CX and QF operate(d) both GE and RR 744's while BR, NH, JL, CI, LH run theirs with GE's. I know the Oasis 744s were PW but I don't know who originally ordered them. As for freighters, CV operates both GE and RR while PO has only GE. The only freighters I know personally that have PW are CA's. I didn't know PW sold a lot of engines for the 744. Thanks for the info Tom.

Quoting tdscanuck (Reply 7): The PW customers were: Air China, Air India, China Airlines, El Al, Korean, Malaysia, Mandarin, Northwest, Singapore, and United.
I found what your talking about at Boeing. I never realized that SQ and CI had ordered PW for the 744s. I noticed also that for the 744f/744erf that SQ and CX ordered PW for their aircraft, however, in my time at ORD having worked both SQ and CX freighters, they either have RR or GE, but Boeing has that nowhere in their. Also, I can't believe I forgot about NW and LY in my last post.....
