Earlier this week I reported that use of an official website providing information about the Thames Cable Car placed Londoners under Dubai law.
Transport for London’s press office have yet to reply to my email asking why this arrangement was deemed appropriate.
The site’s operators – seemingly Emirates – have also corrected an embarrassing gaffe spotted by Twitter in which they misdirected would-be passengers to the wrong Tube stations for each of the terminals.
Let’s hope the quality control on the cable car itself is a little better than that shown so far by its partial sponsors on their website.
Update 22nd June 2012: TfL have provided the following quote in the name of Danny Price, TfL’s head of the Thames Cable Car:
“The option for the sponsor to have a website with details of the Emirates Air Line is part of the sponsorship agreement with Transport for London.
“Our sponsor is a Dubai-based company and therefore some of its websites are registered in Dubai. The terms and conditions of the Emirates Air Line website, wherever required, will be subject to English law.”
