Faulty elevator to blame for Burj Khalifa skydeck shutdown
With spokespeople like these, who needs enemies? Closed for "maintenance and upgrade," my foot. Did seriously believe that they could permanently cover up something like this, in such a major landmark and with so many witnesses? Elevator stalling is not entirely uncommon, but by hiding the real reason for the shutdown, they only made it look worse. As with the Dubai World debt restructuring and the metro completion, denying it until it becomes impossible to deny will only erode credibility, while not helping to solve the problem itself.

  1. Oh yes, I read the news about that. Might be very impressive when you feel the lift is falling down!!!
    I remember in the 101 in taipei how fast the lift was going, I think it is still the fastest, no?
