I am very upset to see that you are making such a HUGE mistake. AOM is not UTA !!!!!!!!
My whole family used to work for UTA in Papeete. UTA was bought up by Air France and merged into one single airline in 1992, namely compagnie nationale Air France. If you want to know something else too, it is actually UTA who bought Air France for 1FFR ! Yes and to prove it you just need to look at the SIREE number of Air France it is UTA's. I can get very upset with UTA as I grew up with the airline and I have wlways been fond of them. I work with ex-UTA cabin crews and pilots and one of my best friend is an ex-UTA chief purser. AOM was as Tristar500 said formed by the merger of Air Outre Mer and Minerve. Minerve was a private charter company and so was Air Outre Mer.
I want you to read again and prove to me that any part of AOM is UTA apart for the DC-10's that were bought by AOM from AF or the cabin crew who went to work for AOM after the buy-up by AF.
I have all the information and if you want my mother can contact a very good friend of hers, Michel Boutbien, UTA's number 2 now consultant to the Aga-Khan.
You must stand corrected as UTA is not AOM !!!!!!!!
