I was supposed to get ambushed at the meeting with this passenger. I did not drop into crew combat at all. Instead, the mission apparantly finished with the happy departure of our passenger, who again isn't Mysterious Passenger, and us being paid and rewarded.

And no reward (or saying good bye to our passenger) until we win the fight, I assume. Can the passenger get killed?
Yes, success or fail waits on the outcome of the fight.
We are not going to go the CK route and add the passenger to a combat ever. So, if you fail to protect him, then something bad will happen to the passenger. In the case of your specific mission, those thugs kill him. If you are fighting Faction security forces, passenger is arrested and likely tortured / executed / ransomed.
