Turkmenistan airlines?

Has anyone flown them? How safe are they? I was wondering as they have quite cheap fares to BKK from CDG and the prices just seem too good to be true.

Also is photography allowed on the plane?

What if you call a number where you have to speak German?I know it isn't Ideal but I would think that then the office would have to be in Germany(as I bet it would be hard to get german speaking staff in Asia) and I bet that someone would have authority there to change your friends ticket.
