Hi. I'm planning a 6-day trip to Uzbekistan in July, 2002. I am having problems making the itinerary. I'd like to fly from Samarkand to Boston. Where would I have to change flights in and what airline(s) could I fly?

this might help you

Uzbekistan Airways, carriers from all over the world, fly’s to and from Tashkent, which has links to Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt, Athens, Istanbul, Karachi, Delhi, Peking, New York, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Jeddah, Bahrain, Bangkok, Tel Aviv. Uzbekistan Airways is the first in Central Asia to open direct transoceanic service between Tashkent and New York.

Uzbekistan Airways fleet of Boeing-767, A-310’s, RJ-85’s offers passengers high standard of comfort and safety, coupled with excellent in-flight service

Uzbekistan Airways has his crews trained by Lufthansa in Frankfurt, where also maintenance was done.
From 1999 Airbus has certified Uzbekistan Airways to do his own maintenance.

The international airport "Tashkent" linking Europe and Asia can handle the largest aircraft.The new Tower at the airport of the Airtrafficcontrol has the most modern equipment to guide all air traffic in the airspace of Uzbekistan.

i would recomend flying Uzbekistan Airways to london and then connecting from there to boston. But if you are brave you could fly to new york and then connect to boston from jfk. either way sounds fun
