The pilot reported that on landing at Wellington he was unable to select right engine reverse thrust beyond amber reverse in transit position. Air New Zealand engineering investigated the malfunction and discovered that the right engine reverse thrust lockout devices were installed. There was no notice to operating crew, no placards, no "inop" stickers and no red tags on the engine nacelle. The aircraft had been in QANTAS maintenance prior to operating on this sector. QANTAS engineering staff had failed to re-activate the thrust reverser function after it had been rendered inoperative during maintenance.
