Uzbekistan AirwaysWe would like to catch a direct flight with Uzbekistan Airways from Tashkent to Amritsar/India.
Does anyone have any advice on how to book this flight from Australia (no office here) and they
don't offer online booking. I emailed the airline repeatedly, but no response. I looked at a couple
of website, that claim to handle the booking, like edreams, but they get lousy reviews...

1Any (good) travel agency in Australia should be able to book it for you. I don't know what are the best (online) travel agencies in Australia though. That would be a question for the Australia branch.
P.S.: Zuji allows you to book that flight but I don't know if Zuji is a good/reliable company so if you don't know it, you could ask in the Australia branch about its quality.

2Zuji is the brand for Travelocity in Australia and the Pacific and has a number of local sites across the region. I've used it often as I find it almost always produces better options for departures from that region than Expedia or Jetabroad. However, you should treat any online purchases as final and not expect to easily modify or cancel any bookings made through that site, or hope for good customer service from it.
Zuji.com.au is also good for booking flights in other parts of the world if you want to pay in AUD and avoid bank fees for payments made on 'foreign' sites (even if paid in AUD on such sites).
However, for a flight such as TAS -> ATQ you will find more choice and better prices on a site such as www.tripsta.co.uk (or pick another site/currency from the www.tripsta.net global site).

3You might try Cheapoair.com. I used them in 2009 for an Uzbekistan Airways flight to Tashkent. The bad news was that at that time Uzbekistan Airways had strange restrictions on issuing e-tickets and Cheapo ended up having to issue a physical ticket and FedEx it to me from New York. But that was three years ago, so maybe things will have improved.

8Not sure if you are still looking to book this flight. I used the http://www.uzbekistanairways.uk.com/ website this week to book a domestic flight in Uzbekistan (Nukus to Tashkent). The process worked out great.
I did everything online and within the day got an email asking me for my passport information. Within hours I got an e-ticket with Uzbekistan Airways confirmation number. Of course there was a booking fee, but it was worth it. And ironically, the price was cheaper the amount that the Uzbekistan Airways office in the USA quoted to be over the phone. Good luck.
