Someone had asked this question before. At that time, I didn't know the answer. However, after some "research," I noticed that all the -300s with the -400 wing-body fairings have the CF6-80C2 engine which are also the engine used on the -400. However, I don't believe ANA has any -300. You must have mistaken ANA's -400D (domestic version that does not have the winglets but can later be retrofitted for long-haul ops) with the -300. THAI and Varig also have this type of 747-300.
