> Any others? There were three 757s built for Indian Airlines with PW2000 engine that were never delivered to IA. Republic Airlines bought them with the requirement that RB211-535 engines be added. Later Republic was bought by Northwest. NWA had lots of 757s with PW2000 engines. They asked Boeing if the Republic airplanes could be modified to install PW engines for commonality! NWA did not reengine the airplanes but instead sold them and bought other new 757s with PW engines.
