The Belgrade flute professor Ljubisa Jovanovic has returned from an exhilarating time at the CFA Flute festival in Qingdao, China.

‘It was spectacular,’ he tells us, ‘more than 2000 flutists all over the China ..wonderful days with top flutists from all over the world.

‘Thanks to China Flute Association invested so big money in our travel expenses and lodging in 5 stars hotels in Qingdao. Thanks to Ministry of Culture of Serbia for 300.000 dinars (2.500€) support for travel expenses.’

Ljubisa is full of prasie for everyone who organised and participated in the event, with one exception:

‘NO THANKS to AirFrance, for no convenient traveling to China, for waiting and technical air plane problems, 21h to late coming in Qingdao and many more things!’

Airlines, doncha just love ’em?

    The so-called European flag carrying airlines (BA, Air France, Lufthansa etc) are absolutely dire.
