I wanted to ask the experts on this forum if they can tell me on which routes Lufthansa uses its A310s. Mainly the international routes because I have some spare frequent flyer miles to spend and I wanted to get the chance to fly on the last (old) type in their fleet that I haven't been on.

If you want to make sure you get one, you should fly
LH612/613 Frankfurt-Baku-Frankfurt (will switch over to A330/340 soon)
occasionally you get them on domestic runs like FRA-TXL/HAM/MUC but these are subject to change.
I think there is another destination that regularly sees the A310 - incase you are not too thrilled about Baku.
But let me tell you, if you have been on an A300 the 310 wont feel any different, nothing much to get excited about.
Btw, when is LH ridding itself of the 310s altogether?

Damn it Patrick beat me!
Another destination is Almaty.
FRA ALA 0116-1100/0116-2240 LH 648 C9 D9 Z9 Y9 B9 M9 H9 Q9 V9 W9 S4 (310)
ALA FRA 0118-0415/0118-0625 LH 647 C9 D9 Z9 Y9 B9 M9 H9 Q9 V9 W9 S9 (310)
These three destinations arent the common tourist destinations but it might be interesting to have a look at actually. Dont know about obtaining visas and stuff though, plus dont fly Business because unless you get D-AIDN the seats will be Euro configuration and it would suck to burn miles on that. DN still has some old Business seats (really old, no PTV etc).

A bit closer to home, you might try Frankfurt-Venice. I don't know if this is still an A310 route, but it was last March...I was waiting to board my flight at FRA and was somewhat surprised to see an A310 was leaving for VCE from a nearby gate.

Dunno much about Azerbaijan, but the Economist magazine recently selected Turkmenistan as the worst country in the world, a (dis)honor formerly held by such garden spots as Afghanistan and Liberia. Among much else, the article noted that women are prohibited from emigrating unless they have given birth to at least three children, that being the minimum necessary to ensure Turkmenistan's growth.

If you're really planning to fly to Turkmenistan, you should ask Daniel (Airsicknessbag), I'm pretty sure he'll join you on that trip because I think that Turkmenistan is one of the few countries that is still missing on his been-to list.

That´s grossly exaggerated, there are currently 142 countries which I have NOT visited
BTW, it seems to be a real pain to enter Turkmenistan - for those reading German, have a look at the following link:

"These three destinations arent the common tourist destinations."
Precisely. As a very keen backpacker, I actively avoid such "common tourist destinations" in favour of the 'real' thing - i.e. culture and seeing, experiencing and learning all about the locals and the areas (which including one of my favourite things - religious architecture).
Turkmenistan essentially resembles a Gulf state without the money: it's sparsely populated and, although the second-largest country in Central Asia, four-fifths of it consists of an inhospitable desert (the Karakum) which conceils unexploited (at least for now) gas and oil deposits.
