You need to have that printed boarding pass and a valid ID, e.g. a passport. That's all. Source: Personal experience. I fly Ryanair several times a year.

I don't know about an online resource for these places, but I actually found them pretty easy to find in bigger cities. While walking around I often saw them, even randomly in Shanghai. What I would do is, copy this photo onto your phone and then show it to locals, or even better your hotel reception. Even without speaking any English, people were always ...

The excellent answer by @PeterHahndorf has inspired me for a viable solution: The ticket office in the picture he provides reads "火车票代售点" i.e. railway ticket selling point. Searching for this (the Chinese phrase!) on baidu maps gives a good selection of such offices, including the one I had found. Screenshot of map.baidu.com searching for "火车票代售点" in ...

I've been in this situation as well. Luckily, most of my bookings were online, and I kept the emails. But this didn't work for all my flights. The other comments and answers contain good hints for various ways to reconstruct the dates. But when all else fails, the best way is to email the airline's customer service department (I think even United has one of ...

As so often, it will be the charm of the person they select that will be the reason to ...

Them: Hi [name] No problem at all ! If you wish to cancel a flight, let me know, I can refund you the taxes if there are some. :-) Have a nice day ! So you can ...

Transavia is a typical low-cost airlines. To my knowledge, it only sells point-to-point tickets and does not have any complicated fares so you should be safe. I did not find anything about return flights in their conditions of carriage either (all the usual stuff about using different legs or "coupons" in the right order and allowing airlines to charge you ...

Good idea to check with your hotel receptionist about where to find the nearest railway ticket agency if you live in a hotel in China which is allowed to host foreigners.

Responding to "Perhaps from the ticket number?" If the boarding pass has the ticket number on it, then as Doc mentions in comments, these are issued sequentially and can possibly be used to determine the rough date, however it requires a little research. Although BA boarding passes don't have ticket numbers on them (apart from mobile ones), they're the ones ...
