Yeah, I've never had a problem in the US with the way FTTB is run but both times I had it in Europe security seemed to have no idea what was going on and just let people go kind of nuts. Security tried to control people in Paris but were pretty heavy-handed about it and led to a lot of tension between the two groups. It's really not that hard to have a handful of guards get people to form a line and let them in one by one or two by two or whatever as they check your ticket. That's how I've always had it done in the US. It doesn't help that I've noticed Europeans have trouble with queuing and the concept of line in general though.
