PIA have all three types of engines on their 747s

GE on 747-240M
PW on 747-217
RR on 747_367

Which are other Airlines who are using all three types of engines on 747?

I do not know if it is currently the case, but Air Atlanta has had P&W, GE and RR powered airplanes operating at the same time. Why they do that... is not the question - they just ended up with airplanes acquired from other airlines, equipped with different engines.
