This actually didn't help. I understand how airplane mode works. Thanks.

The Find My iPhone app can only send the lock command when the iPhone it can communicate with it. That will not happen until the next time the iPhone is connected to the internet, either using wifi or cell signal. If the person who found it doesn't connect to the internet and just reformats it without connecting, then the lock signal will never be sent. Same with the "find" function, if the app cannot communicate with the iPhone, it cannot locate it.
