PHOENIX -- Additional K9 patrols, law enforcement and screenings. That's what you can expect at both the gate and security checkpoints at Sky Harbor International Airport. In addition, more air marshals are working behind the scenes, according to the TSA.

At the same time, the TSA said it is easing some of the tighter restrictions put in place over the weekend, including a requirement that passengers remain seated during the last hour of international flights, not allowing access to carry-on bags and limiting restroom use.

The agency's new approach is to confuse you. Officials believe that if the passengers are confused, terrorists will be, too.

The TSA is not publishing a specific list of dos and don'ts, what is allowed and what isn't. Rather, it's leaving in-flight restrictions up to the captains.
