From Today's Gulf News (8-2-10)
"Dubai: The Burj Khalifa observation deck has been temporarily closed for "maintenance and upgrade".
A spokesperson for Burj Khalifa, said: "Due to unexpected high traffic, the observation deck experience at the Burj Khalifa, At the Top, has been temporarily closed for maintenance and upgrade."
Yeah right, because there is high traffic the observation deck is closed for "upgrade". It is less than a month old for chrissake...That is the kind of "story" that gives the press a bad name.
How about just saying. There was a problem with X and Y and the observation needs to be closed while repairs/corrections are being made. We apologize for the inconvenience (full stop).
