I had always understood that you're obliged to have your passport to travel, and that your permis is not acceptable on its own.

Airlines will want to check your passport (been there, seen it, done it). No passport = no flight (unless you are really lucky, the check-in agent is lazy/half asleep/all of the above),

You should always have a passport when you travel. Unlikely that B permit will help you get out of a Thai jail, although I did get asked by the Thai agent in Bangkok for my permit to show I could legally go to Zurich, so I go with both.

Never a problem entering with just the B permit, ever. I'd take both but keep them in separate places.

Re: ** Urgent**Non-Eu with B residence permit travel to BCN without passport

I have travelled to Germany without my passport and only my Swiss work permit. I have travelled by car and train.

The airport is probably more strict in this regard.

Perhaps you could get a second passport?

It will always be easier by train as they aren't as strict but if you can travel with a passport it will always be easier!

In addition to those countries mentioned above, as a non-EU with B permit, I have travelled without my passport to Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein by rail and PostBus / PostAuto without any issues.
