The other answers are all things you should do first, but if all else fails, and you have no access to a phone or a computer, almost all airports have a 'travellers aid' or similarly named desk, who are there to handle situations like this. Talk to them. They will speak English and will almost certainly book a hotel for you.

There is a Sheraton hotel built into the Airport at Paris CDG. It's in Terminal 2, by the VAL shuttle train between the terminals, and very close to the railway station. As a non-French speaker with no laptop, this will be by far your easiest and least stress option. (Not the cheapest mind) So, your best option is just to head there - use the free shuttle ...

It's absolutely possible to buy a ticket at the airport, you'd have good chances of being able to find one relatively fast as Paris-NYC is a very frequently serviced route. CDG being a big international airport, one of the busiest in Europe, you'll have no trouble finding an English speaker, if not Air France then surely an American airline. Counters will ...

Nothing special. I did this not too long ago in Europe personally. You just need your passport/travel document, and a valid explanation as to where you are traveling and why you are doing it alone if you are questioned about your age. The contact details of your legal guardians would also be wise to have on you in case the border guards want to call and ...

Usually, half a day of work is 4 hours in some companies. So it could mean that the strike duration will be just a bit less than half a day so that workers on strike haven't not more than half a day removed from their pay... Having said that, I think it is more related to the way the event management program is set. The person who input the strike event ...

The simple and straight answer is to behave like a Parisian in Paris :) When those people are approaching, the easiest way to get rid of them is to just not pay attention to them.
