It's 'Terminal'

Fun NYT report from Moscow airport.  "The airport transit area here where Edward J. Snowden, the fugitive American national security contractor, is believed to be planning his next move, has a Burger King, TGI Friday’s and panoply of coffee shops...A group of Japanese men sat on the floor into the afternoon alongside several empty and nearly empty whiskey bottles....Many reporters, with purchased plane tickets that have given them access to the area, have spent sleepless nights patrolling the long halls of the transit zone, looking for witnesses among the janitors, cashiers and flight attendants....At times, the quest took on an air of desperation: reporters from a Russian tabloid covertly took photographs of a correspondent for The New York Times, then showed them to her and explained that they thought she might be Sarah Harrison, the WikiLeaks adviser who is believed to be traveling with Mr. Snowden."

Below: until now, the most famous passenger trapped in a terminal.
