New security rules now in place for all foreign flights into the United States. The changes come following the lifitng of the laptop ban imposed on airlines from the Middle East.

Passengers will now be asked to do security interviews; ranging from verbal quizzes from airline employees to written forms passengers will have to fill out. 

One woman flying in from Tokyo says it helps her feel more safe. 

"Today, it's kinda crazy," said Tamu Wikins. "You just can't take chances and go on. That might be the person that has something they shouldn't have."

TSA says other changes include a heightened screening of electronic devices and stricter security measures around airports. Airlines are asking passengers to arrive early to avoid delays.
