I hope it isn't stupid question, but if Eurasia is on hold why does it have cranes on top? Why haven't they dismantled them?

To put it short: the former developer is out of money and rumored to be bankrupt (although he doesn't confirm it officially), the current owners are not developers. The tower may change hands quite a few more times before the construction resumes with a new developer. I guess, with all the court hearings they've got a lot of other things to drain money in.

Well I personally don't like the twentieth century skyscrapers in Frankfurt, their taste, and appearance does not appeal to me. While I prefer modern and tall skyscrapers.

I don't know what to say. It may be a little cheap or a little expensive looking, comparing to this and that. Frankfurt looks good, but in a way it also looks more soviet and outdated than MIBC. London's scrapers look awesome, but a bit kitschy, a little boring, although much better than Shanghai. Obviously, the question of look is a tough question and to say such thing as cheap look of MIBC, one has to be aware it means nothing but someone's impression over unfinished buildings.
In any way, I don't think skyscrapers are such a good idea for european skylines. Neither London nor Moscow is a skyline one likes to see with those tall buildings.

London regularly hits 14-15million tourists a year and Heathrow is regularly the busiest airport in the world!
Meaningful numbers are real complicated. Orlando Florida gets nearly 50 million visitors a year. So it depends if you're counting domestic, international, unique visitors, repeated visitors, visitors from a certain distance away, airplane or train visitors or also cars, etc.

The numbers that put London and Paris on top tend to be referring to international visitors. European cities quote those numbers because they end up on top. American cities include domestic visitors because that puts them on top. It really depends how many countries a continent is divided into.

Edit: same thing for busiest airport comparisons. Heathrow isn't anywhere close to having the most flights or passengers a year. Currently, Atlanta Georgia holds that crown, being more than double Heathrow. That is, unless you are counting only international passenger flights/passengers. A large percentage of Atlanta's passengers are domestic travelers. Again, it matters how many countries the continent is divided into.

But back on topic. Wow! Moscow has certainly grown a nice patch of skyscrapers in the last decade. Well done! Although if I were to visit Moscow, I would probably be there to look at all the other buildings instead.

Well, everyone are entitled to their own opinion, but I beg to disagree. For me, modern > old when it comes to skyscrapers.
