comment Purchase Paris Visite pass from Orly airport on a public holiday
@rafeymaher Oh, I think you're right: Paris Visite isn't just a ticket, there's also a leaflet and I think coupons for the attractions, so the machines can't hand it out. If you're going to CDG and Disneyland then indeed Paris Visite is a better deal for you than for the average tourist. Though perhaps Mobilis (day pass) would come out cheaper (not advertised to tourists, I think it's only mentioned on the French part of the website) — then again probably not because Mobilis isn't valid for the airport trips.

comment Is there some other train than Eurostar to go from Lille to London?
@MarkMayo Eurotunnel shuttles don't take foot passengers. Technically, I don't know if you can smuggle in by pretending to be a cyclist, but I don't think so. So you need a vehicle not only to go from Lille to Coquelles and Folkestone to London, but also to take that vehicle with you in the train.

comment One-way USA to Switzerland without a return ticket
Beware that many countries require proof of ongoing travel to issue a tourist (or other) visa. I don't know if that's the case for Schengen with US citizenship. Also, it may be cheaper to book a flexible return than two singles.

comment Rail transport in Mayotte?
Either in error, or deliberately as a copyright trap: if someone publishes a map of Mayotte with a light rail station, it's blatant who they copied from. Mapmakers do that.
