      Hard to expect people will travel when they weren't allowed to even leave their municipality/region.

      And only Slovenia was suffering from these restrictions

      Well.. yes. Travel and movement restrictions in Slovenia were much much tougher than in other ex-yu countries throughout Q1.

      Meanwhile other ex-yu countries apart from Croatia couldn't even enter EU even if they wanted to. Even today....

    5. So daily flights with no smaller aircrafts than A320 than flying from Ex-Yu to EU obvisly empty.

      As a business traveler, restrictions have been milder.
      But traffic went to Austria and Croatia.

      I'll make a screenshot of this comment to save it in the calendar. 15apr every year for the next 10 years. Also, it would be funny to bet on your prediction, too bad it's anonymous.

      The only thing they are focused on are their salaries. In the next 10 years even OMO will have more passengers than LJU.

      Lets see will there be a positive development as described in post at 18:02 or will it fall all to pieces as described in post 1 9:11

      I hope for and support the first option :)
