I'm surprised that no-one has suggested going to the play store / device manager and using the built-in tools for locking and erasing the device in question. Go here: https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager?hl=en&u=0
Yea there is one miracle app which should be already installed in your device. Android Device Manager is built into all Android phones and allows you to do almost anything you want and you can operate it with your google account that you used on your mobile but it only works when GPS is activated.
If you had an internet connection when you took the photos, they'll get backed up, assuming Auto Backup was switched on. Otherwise, the photos will get backed up only if someone finds it and switches on the internet connection. Given that you lost the phone in a flight, chances are high that you can find it by contacting the airport authorities.
Do you still have the packaging for the phone? The IMEI number should be printed on the packaging. Alternatively if you used a Google account on your device, you can get it from accessing the dashboard and going down to Android. Your IMEI should be displayed there.
You should be able to get this information from your network provider as they will have a list of IMEI numbers that have been used by your sim card depending on the system that their customer care is using. They may need to contact a higher department in order to get this information for you.
Look on the original box of your phone. There you should find the IMEI number on a sticker. Good luck with finding your phone :-) However you can also go to https://www.google.com/settings/dashboard and login with the account used on your phone and then go to 'Android'. There you will see all your Android devices and you IMEI numbers.
You can create an account with Airdroid and link your phone to that account. It'll then use a 3g/4g connection if WiFi isn't available. Alternatively, if you're looking to use it as a security feature, if your phone is linked to your Google Account, you can use Google's Device Manager to wipe/Find/Lock/Make it Ring remotely.
If this is installed then you can locate it .Go to google.com/android/devicemanager and see if your phone is picked up. Outside of that, reporting it stolen to the carrier and police is your next bet if you didn't install any software with remote capabilities. For more derails you can also refer Samsung India site.
