you pay 95 euro for 40 minutes, I think it is the most expensive taxi bill paid for a small city like the Aarhus

Just experienced out-of-this-world great customer service on 2 occations today while flying from Aarhus to London. Am for years a frequent flier across a number of international airports, my family have never been treated so well anywhere ever. A very big thank you to both of the staff who went out of their way (and beyond) for us! Tusind tak!!

Yet another 40 minutes spent in a cold corridor with no heating on. Like a third world country airport.
