JAL's DC-10-40s have JT9D-59A (not -59A2) engines.  Northwest's have
either JT9D-20 or -20J engines.

Similarly, the DC-10-30 comes with a variety CF6-50 series engines.
Northwest has two with the -50C2B variant you mention (yes, Northwest
has both DC-10-30s and -40s) but the others have -50C engines.  The
-50C2 seems to be the most popular choice -- the other US majors all
seem to have them on their DC-10-30s, as do British Airways and the
former Lufthansa planes.
