Isn't the same base camp used for both Kommunism and Korzhenevskaya?
Peak Lenina is the easiest and cheapest 7000 m option because you can drive to a base camp.
At the same time Pobeda, Kommunism and Korzhenevskaya require a helicopter ride.
Pobeda is the hardest one. In case of a bad weather, there is a chance that nobody is able to reach its summit that year.

Don't go to Pik Lenin
I don't know about specific helicopter issues with Korz & Comm but I do know they had a bad food poisoning / e-coli outbreak at the BC a year or two ago. I think business has been down there for a few years, for various reasons.
If you want to go to Tajikistan, you could go to Pik Karl Marx (6720m), down near the Afghan border. It's quite high, there are no real permit costs and an agency in Dushanbe can organise it for you. The main cost is a long jeep ride down there. You can hire horses to carry gear in from the road, or do it yourself in a couple of days. The normal route from the southwest is not too difficult, but harder than Lenin and far, far fewer people.
