Life like an airport

Imagine the following scene:
You are making an intercontinental flight from Australia to Berlin via Singapore when, during the refueling in Singapore, all flights are cancelled. There’s a great storm outside and your flight is about to delay at least four hours until the wind calms down.
“Stay calm and make yourself comfortable,” invites you an airline agent kindly. Suddenly, the internet at the airport dies, mobile phones have no connection. There are no newspapers, books, TV, or radio. Only people. Nobody panics, people remain calm. All they have to do is wait until the storm is over.

Look around.
Which person in this multinational crowd full of strangers might be “your type”?
What do you like about him/her?
What would you talk to him/her about?
Pay attention to what interests you in this person? Why exactly him/her?
What would you recommend him/her?

Now, let’s change the point of view. If you were trapped in real life for hours at the airport far away who would like to to spend your time with? And who else?
