Obviously, this question is open to debate in terms of how "obscure" something is, but for fun, name the strangest, least common, most foreign airline you've been on--to you, for example if you live in Helsinki than GOL might be your most obscure, but not if you live in Sao Paulo.
For example, since I live in Phoenix, my most obscure airline is Air Malta.

Definitely Champion Air here, MSP-PVR r/t in March 2001. Everything else is a scheduled US-based carrier so they aren't that obscure, although a majority of people haven't heard of Sun Country either, my second most obscure airline.

Has to be Bouraq Surabaya - Den Pasar for me.
Worst airline experience ever too. They let us wait for over 8 hours for another plane to come, since our scheduled plane had a broken window in SIN (no idea how a window (passanger window that is) can be broken though)

PanAm III BLV-GYY over Christmas in 2000 or 2001. It was obscure because the airline only offered a couple of flights out of the St. Louis area. I wanted to experience the extra legroom and the hot bread and cookies for the in-flight service.
I wasn't disappointed on the first part as there was more room...OOPS...that's another airline altogether! Alas the only thing served was soft drinks, so I was disappointed on the service.

Transavia, back in the day they codeshared with Continental at LGW for the short hop to AMS. Great little airline, but my traveling partner at the time kept insisting on calling it Transylvania Airlines.
