Delta flight to AMS - Covid requirement

We leave March 30 via Delta to AMS. Their FlyReady site says we still need a test (though it's confusing - it says it's required but if you click on the menu, it says it's not) even though we don't as of today. I chatted with an agent via Twitter, who did some research and agrees and says the site and app SHOULD be updated at some point. Just curious what happens if we show up next week with no test and the site still says we need one.

A test to go, or a test to come back? Test to go is a really old restriction, if it ever existed

I'd check in at the desk if you anticipate problems (I can't get FlyReady to work). If the desk agent says you need a test, I'd ask her to read further down her screen to see that the test is no longer required. If they are still saying a test is needed, I'd go up the supervisory chain. I'd also have the Netherlands Government covid site bookmarked on my phone.

When I traveled last Fall the Delta Desk agent at my local (non-international) airport tried to say I needed a test. I knew that was not needed so I told her what I suggested to you. Meanwhile she asked her co-worker at the next screen who was also checking in my friend who was headed to Paris and had already found the information that no test was needed.

My suggestion is to be confident in what you know but also have governmental sites bookmarked.

No, and I'd truly not worry about this. Easy for me to say...right?

Is your first from an International Airport or a smaller one and transit to a hub?

Oh gosh..you'll likely have NO problem. They will have had a weeks worth of direct flights so everyone will be up on the guidelines. I fly out of Spokane to Seattle to get my international flight and that was tougher but NOT insurmountable! Really it didn't take much except for me to be firm in the knowledge no test was needed for a fully vaxx'd person and she figured it out.

Good point - they will have dealt with it at the airport long before I get there!

We are flying to AMS one week from tomorrow (4/3.) We will be going in 2 days before a river cruise. Although the Netherlands no longer requires a test, Viking does. At least the time period was extended to 72 hours prior to departure. This helps as we are flying on a Sunday afternoon.
