The AAA booth was there at Arrivals but she indicated to just go outside 
and take a taxi.

In the taxi I asked for "whyphy" and I was not understood, so I 
pronounced French "ouifi" and he understood.  He then took his LG 
smartphone, launched an app.  The ESSID was "Alpha541".  He then called 
a dispatcher, asked for a wifi key, and gave me that key verbally - 
"aaa14014".  I got an IPv4 address only (192.smthing) and no IPv6 
address.  54mbit/s.

I am not happy he manipulated the smartphone while driving - this is a 
huge security risk.

google was unfortunately not reachable, as no other Internet site.  I 
guess the app on the LG phone had some problem.

But I am happy WiFi is at least advertised to work in this taxi company.
