what fifth freedom flights do SkyTeam airlines offer?

I was just reading about the impending conclusion of a regular LATAM (not yet SkyTeam) 777 flight between Frankfurt and Madrid and it got me thinking: what Fifth Freedom flights do any SkyTeam airlines currently offer that can be sold & flown as their own standalone segments?

Before Delta got rid of its NRT hub, they used to offer all kinds of flights. Looking at Google, I also think there may be KLM flights between DPS & SIN and TPE & MNL.

Not a 5th freedom flight. It's a US to a French territory flight.

The last CI flight CHC MEL was March 2018. Used to operate in the [southern] summer. A flight I often used to take

Does AF actually allow its PAX to fly those as standalone? I don't think so, but may be wrong. I don't think you can book BKO-ABJ or ACC-OUA for instance

It doesn't necessarily mean the list is entirely correct; the KLM list looks incomplete in that TPE-MNL isn't listed (though they may not currently be allowed to carry local traffic on that sector due to Philippine government restrictions)
