    I find it pretty hard to believe that London is not even in the top five.

    Kind of a pointless survey. The more important question is overall cost. I really don't care if it costs me $25 for a taxi to LaGuardia, but I do resent paying $100 for a taxi to Heathrow. OTOH there is the question of alternatives. Many of the listed cities have fast convenient express trains (or somewhat slower metro) from airport to city center. So the per mile taxi cost is not a factor for many people.

    IMO a better question would be "Which airport have no public transit and high taxi fares?"

    Houston comes to mind. And New Orleans.
