Has Air New Zealand ever used engines other than Rolls-Royce on their Boeing 747's?

Which 747-400s had PW4000s?

The only vague connection NZ has to PW powered 744s, to the best of my knowledge, is Ansett's SQ leased 744s.

NZ has never had 747's with PW engines, all the 200's had RR and then the first batch of 400's had RR then they got a couple of ex RG aircraft with GE engines then order more themselves with GE engines.

Thanks guys. I truly appreciate the valuable info that you have given. Nevertheless, I prefer PW or GE engines on Air New Zealand's 747-400's rather than the RR engines. I personally think that the PW and GE engines look much better on a 747 than RR engines. That is all for now.
