Dear all:
Just like to clear a few things up concerning AOM's routes.I know nothing about their LAX route, but, as concerns their Sydney route:the DC-10 makes an en route stop at Colombo's Banderanike international (Sri Lanka-CMB).Also, the plane's final destination is not Sydney, but New Caledonia.

AOM French Airlines is flying the route ORY-CMB-SYD-NOU with the DC-10-30, twice weekly. Check the flight. I think it's IW923 and IW924.
Such a long flight!

I personally feel that AOM is always having a problem in flight. I remember that twice when it was coming iin to Sydney from Paris i believe that they needed an ambulance on both occassions. Something not a usual occurnance you would like!
