I am interested to see what aircrafts are uncommon at your home airport. We shall limit it to passenger jets that are "common" elsewhere but not common at your home airport, such as Airbus, Boeing and CRJs.
For my home airport SIN:
Airbus A340-300 - I might be wrong, but LH and MU should be the only operators to SIN from MUC and PVG respectively.
Airbus A340-600 - LH used to operate them on their MUC-SIN route but now it has become A343. TG uses them occasionally on the BKK-SIN route but it has been missing for a while too.
Boeing 717-200 - Not a very common airplane in most airports too. The nearest operator to SIN is PG (Bangkok Airways) but they fly the Airbus A320-200 to SIN.
Boeing 757 (All series) - I don't think any airlines operate this to SIN as of now? Please correct me if I'm wrong!
Boeing 777-200LR - Only DL operates this a/c on the NRT-SIN route.

For Brisbane sticking to aircraft common in other parts of the world
CRJ - No CRJ's last CRJ operator was Kendell Airlines with CRJ200's from 1999-2001
ERJ - No ERJ's either last operator was Skyairworld with a pair of ERJ145's from 2007-2009.
747 - QF fly them on the BNE-LAX which appears to have gone down to 5 weekly NZ also fly a 747 on a weekly AKL-BNE rotation. but a few years ago QF flew them to SIN/MNL/LAX/AKL/SYD, JL had 2 daily 747's, TG and MH both had 747's flights and on some days there were more then one NZ 747's in BNE at once.
757 - No flights whatsoever until about 12 months ago when Air Niugini started flying them here nowadays it is one weekly POM-BNE-SYD-POM flight which passes through on Sunday afternoon.

PHX - 747s (only the 6x weekly BA flight) and 777s. Embraer jets are relatively rare, CO Express has the 145 and Midwest has a 190, but that's it. Great Lakes does have a few EMB-120s, but they're not jets.

Currently MDW is lacking anything larger than an A319/73G on a regular basis. Occasionally DL's 319s to ATL have gotten a random sub with a 320, 73G, 738, MD80, or MD90. We haven't had any ERJs since CO left in 08 although they'll be coming back when BransonAir starts (however long that may last). We do however get regular E75s, CR2s, Q400s, and a single daily CR9.

717s None never any scheduled
727s DHL Soon to be replaced
747s Other than NZ just a weekly FJ on the PAX side, CX may bring them back in summer, SQ 744F 2 weekly Atlas for QF weekly CV pulling their remaining flight in a few weeks.
757s none, very few have ever been scheduled
767s other than NZ just a few weekly FJ, QF do use them on Freighter flights at night along with the ATI leased 762, BI replacing them soon
777s heaps of 77Es and 77Ws no 773As or 77Ls currently never any scheduled 772As.
A333 none currently
A332 QF 2 daily and SB 1 weekly
A342 just AR
A345 just EK daily to be replaced by a 77W
A346 none currently
A380 just EK daily
No CRJs or ERJs.
Plenty of A320s and 737s!!! Most types like 767s and 777s are very common. A343s are common with several airlines flying them here.
We get a reasonable spread really with NZ dominating with types like 763s and plenty of carriers bringing in 777s.

Here in NYC, I guess any Russian-built aircraft could be considered rare, as well as oldies like 737-200s and the like.
Up in ROC (where I go to school), every night we get a Capital Cargo 727-200 that flies BDL-ROC-TOL-CVG and did the return the following morning. That was as of April... I haven't checked if anything's changed recently. Also, time to time we get a DC-8-73 I think (whichever is the one with the CFMs and operated by Astar).

For NWI -
ignoring aircraft that never visit, I'd say the rarest is the 737! About 2 or 3 per week on sunshine tourist charters.
Most common are the F100s of KLM, the Dash8s of Flybe (several each per day), and the daily ERJ of bmi and Saab of Eastern Airways.

No regularly scheduled 777, 747, A330 or A340, though there is the occasional diversion from SFO.
Surprisingly few 50 seaters considering how common they are elsewhere. There's a CRJ flight from LAX on UAx, and maybe a CRJ to SLC on DL Conection. I don't think anyone flies the ERJ here anymore since ExpressJet ended their branded operation. Other than that the rest of the RJ flights here are CR7s or bigger.

I should have looked at the schedules before I said that. There are actually a higher percentage of CRJs on those routes than I'd remembered. 3 of the SMF-LAX flights are on CRJs, as are 3 of the flights to SLC. Still, as far as I know those are the only 2 routes that see 50 seat CRJs, so it's still not many compared to other airports. As I said other routs with RJs get CR7s or bigger.

Also would add the A340 to PHX's list. Delta sends the A330s from time to time. The 767, while not exactly rare, is not common here as the only one PHX regularly gets is the Hawaiian 763 and the UPS 76F. Does ABX / DHL still fly their 762s here?
