My memory goes back to the problems in Yugoslavia. From what i understood they did not shut their airspace
Did a jumpseat ride during that period for a late evening flight into a clear, stary night. You could see the flashing from the explosions of the fighting going on down there. The only precaution taken was to fly with all external lights switched off... Not exactly the safest way to fly, but most probably an economic one.
