Looks like I guessed wrong -- AW&ST (Sep 9, 1996, p. 25) says Condor
picked the RB.211-535E4B for their 757-300 order.  This is the second
757 operator I know of to switch from the PW2000 to Rolls-Royce (UPS
is the other).  Any others?  Have any carriers switched from RR on
earlier orders to PW on later ones?
