Tashkent-Urgench-Tashkent. Staff try to get your money for everything, even if most of them knows me personally after 5 years of same destination - extra baggage, better seat, etc. When you want to reserve a seat, mostly you'll get a negative answer first. They will tell you that flight is full. What they do is reserve some seats for artificial names. That way, the flight seems full when you attempt a reservation. If you pay an under-the-counter fee, she will change the name on the reservation on your name, and you got your seat. Same during check-in : they will ask you to put your hand bag/computer/whatever, on to the scale. If you are somehow +20, they will start to make faces, and convince you that it will be too expensive if you pay official fee. They will ask you to pay half of the money that you'll pay officially directly to check in staff. I don't do that now, as the official fee is also is not that much. I simply ask them to write the extra weight, which I check each time, and go to pay to the counter. The officer in the counter is also surprised, as this is not very common. If you'll ask for a specific seat, they will make you understand that it is available against a small tip (2-3 USD). Don't, as usually, no one sits in accordance with the assigned seats, and it is almost impossible to convince the person who have sit to your place to move. In the past, you might also tip (20-50 USD) in the cabin and ask for a Business Class seat, but I do not know if this is still possible.
