I would just like to say "Thank You" to those Forum members who took the trouble to reply. I have still to find the 'mother-lode' of information I was looking for - or perhaps my own database of wet-lease carriers will turn out to be that definitive source!
Please keep the suggestions coming.

Just how long the list is depends on how thorough and exhaustive you want to be with ACMI carriers. For instance, Air Sinai operates a flight to TLV on behalf of MS under an ACMI agreement, but the plane and crew are provided to Air Sinai by MS under another ACMI agreement...

With all the carriers mentioned so far only a couple are US and do passenger service. Now if you wanted to charter an aircraft or do an acmi with a European carrier. Can you use the aircraft domestically here in the US or only international.

I do not know for certain. But unless the rules have changed since the late 70s the answer is llikely to be a resounding 'No'.
Back then Braniff used to 'charter' both AF and BA Concordes to fly IAD-DFW while the aircraft were on turnround at IAD. On arrival at IAD the aircraft had to be placed on the American register. The French or British registration and other documentation was assigned to a special storeage area in the WC at the rear of the plane and the aircraft had to be flown by Braniff crew (although to meet the requiurements of the insurance companies this was under the 'supervision' of French or British flight crew.
When the aircraft arrived back at IAD the whole circus had to be repeated in reverse.
The reverse is certainly an option as the rules in the UK allow a more flexible approach. So the first BAe 146 operated on BA routes were flown on domestic routes in Scotland by Presidentiual flight crew while still registered in the USA:

They went bankrupt and suspended service late last year, but another was UK carrier Flightline which operated several BAe 146s and MD-80s. I remember when they operated a few routes under contract for Swissair using the "Swissair Express" brand. Their BAe 146s were cramped and uncomfortable as they had 6-abreast seating, unlike the very roomy 5-abreast Crossair Avro RJs that are now part of the LX fleet.
