I know that AOM flies into Sydney and LAX. I was wondering how an all DC-10 airline could fly such long routes? (or maybe they fly larger types that I'm not aware of). Also, I'd like to know how Lauda Airlines can fly 767s all the way from Austria to Sydney?

It all happens through the miracle of technical stops where the plane is refueled. ;-) The AOM DC-10s going to LAX probably stop for fuel at Winnipeg or some place.

They operate DC-10s to Sydney by not operating the aircraft with a full load. They problem only have half the airplan full, or they make severa fuel stops on the way from their home base.

You are right. Lauda is flying a B777-200 from Vienna to Kuala Lumpur - Sydney - Melbourne.

Lauda Air is flying the VIE-KUL-SYD route with B777, not 767. They have just started another B777 route: VIE-MEX-CUN-VIE.
