    It's a valid concern, but the target is unlikely to be the US for a few reasons. One is flying an airliner all the way to the US without being tracked and verified as legitimate. If we can intercept Russian bombers, we can certainly intercept an unscheduled airliner and turn it into a new underwater reef.

    A second problem for them is maintenance. Those airliners will quickly turn into maintenance nightmares if they aren't properly maintained and/or flown regularly. In a month or two, they'll be lucky to get off the ground much less fly 15 hours to the USA.

    For the reasons above, I think the Euro or other Middle East cities are more likely to be targeted by these aircraft.

    It's easy to promise something when you know they'll never collect. Kinda like promising a flow through then demanding a pay cap of 12 and 4 years.
