Pretty much every card follows the standard ISO/IEC 15693 or ISO/IEC 14443 which means they operate on 13.56 MHz and will potentially interfere with each other. You might be lucky here or there but in general any two contactless cards will cause interference.

The city of Boston, MA, US uses a system called CharlieCard, and the city of Pittsburgh, PA, US calls their system ConnectCard, but both apparently work on the same standards and will interfere with each other if carried or used together.

I have often bought (and paid with my credit card) tickets for friends, without traveling with them (or being anywhere within 5000 miles when they check in). There was never any issue. This applies to travel within and between Europe, the USA, India, and Central America. When you buy the ticket online, there are separate fields for the person that flies ...

If the card holder is present at check-in but doesn't travel, would they let the traveler board? Yes, typically. It's always worked for me and my kids. Some airlines sometimes might just refund the first purchase and ask to pay the same price with a different card that the traveler has available. Would they accept cash instead of a second card? I ...

You should be fine. Generally the credit card is at least authorized at the time that you check out, so if the system required an exact match on the billing address it would have flagged as an error at that point in time. If you want to double check you could always check your credit card account to see if the payment has gone through.

Billing address is strictly for billing. If they issued the ticket, you are fine. For most vendors, the credit-card company gives them progressively lower rates as they collect more information, so if the vendor supplies your name and address, the transaction only costs them (for example) 1.8% but with the credit-card number, it's 1.9%. Once you have the ...

The short answer is "no". You should be able to check-in and fly without any issue. No for the invoice, you might not receive it if the address is wrong. You can probably contact the airline to make the correction after the fact.

I think it is unlikely (if not impossible) that you will be able to use the lost card to pay for your room. Most U.S. hotel/motel stays are post-paid. As such, you will customarily be asked for a payment method up to three times— at booking, at check-in, and at check-out— but you would only be charged at check-out or for a no-show. Usually, they ask me to ...

I have managed to talk to some people who travelled to Macedonia, including one from Denmark with MasterCard. Apparently, there should not be any issues using either Visa or MasterCard. In any case, it would still be advisable to have some euros with you just in case.

The conditions for the Charles Schwab card remain almost as good as indicated in @holden's answer from 2011. There are still no fees, and still total reimbursement of ATM fees. However, the fine print says that the conversion rate will be between 0.10% and 1.0% in their favor relative to some benchmark, depending on amount and currency. This is my primary ...
