Eiffel Tower Elevator Update?

In postings on this forum I read that several elevators at the ET were out of service. Does anyone know if the elevators are back in service? I'd like to book tickets for a visit in October, but don't want to spend hours in a line. Thank you.

The elevators were out of service in April, and work was expected to last several weeks. This was shown on the Eiffel Tower website.

There is no indication now on the site, and obviously more than a few weeks have passed, and so I dont think you have anything to worry about.

2 elevators working now. 3rd elevator will have to wait until 2013.

We climbed it bottom to top (almost top) last year. Elevators were very busy when we visited last July.
Sure was quite a workout, but very enjoyable and fun to know we climbed it! And, you get a unique view of the structure itself.
