You can tell for sure when they tell you.
Short of that, you might be able to catch a word or phrase that is distinctly British. Most Brits eventually betray a fondness for eccentricity of personality, and a predilection toward viewing society in terms of classes...but these traits also appear in many non-British English-speakers, so they can't be conclusive "tells". There's also a British mode of fashion - but again, a Brit might be wearing local clothes and a non-Brit might wear British styles, so it's not conclusive.Your best bet is vocabulary. Catch their panicked reaction when the American pilot announces "We'll be taking off momentarily."

I'm sure that I could think of many questions that only we would know the answers to. Also as I am British putting on a fake accent won't work, it'd be immediately obvious.
