AOM also fly to Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB)* on their way down to Sydney and Papeete. I also saw an AOM DC-10 at EZE (Buenos Aires) in March; that was a pleasant surprise, since their sole scheduled service to the South American mainland, leaves Paris for Cayenne (French Guyana).
I don't know why it was at EZE.

Not wanting to start an argument, but all I've seen leaving Sydney, of AOM's, has been DC-10s, never 747s!
I get to see some pretty exotic planes each morning here: Egyptair A340s, Air China A340s and 747SPs, Air New Zealand (no surprise there) 767s and 737s,
Thai 777s, Singapore Airlines 777s and 747-400s, Korean Air 777s....

AOM has an arrangement with Cubana de Aviacion for which it flies their aircraft to different destinations from Havana like Buenos Aires, Madrid, Paris, London, Rome, etc. Some AOM DC10´s also carry Cubana markings.

As a french person, encouraging concurrence to Air France, I can tell you that AOM doesn't operate 747. Its fleet includes DC-10-30, two A-340 and some MD-83. UTA, which dissapeared because of AF, got some 747-300 and DC-10-30 to fly nearly the same routes as AOM now. Corsair operates some 742 and 743 whereas Air Liberté operates DC-10-30 and MD-80 (they all operate on the former UTA network covering the french overseas departments and territories)
I'll check if AOM A340 are new or not!
AOM is now partner of Swissair, and is operating in the Qualiflyer Group, together with Sabena, Lauda, Austrian, THY...
