I suspect security will be a more thorough...at least I hope it is even though we're leaving the US.
Once about 5 years back I was on a flight back from Frankfurt and before we took off some tall guy with wild hair was ranting and raving about something (in German). They got him calmed down and gave him a seat in the back of the plane. Then about 30 mins before we landed he was a few rows behind me ranting and raving again. A passenger a few rows ahead immediately got up and went back to where the flight attendants were trying to calm him down.
This passenger was very very fit. So they got crazy dude calmed down and fit guy went back to his seat. Then 5 minutes later crazy dude started up again and fit guy went back to him...and that's when I saw his badge. He was an air marshall.
They ended up taking crazy dude off the plane in handcuffs. I asked one of the attendants what was up and he mumbled something about the guy not liking where he was seated on the plane. Yeah...uh huh.
