Covid tested flights on American Airlines to Italy from DFW

Has anyone tried to book a covid tested flight to Italy from DFW on AA? On Delta's site they are clearly marked, but we can not find one single flight marked covid tested for August on AA. They say they have them from DFW but we are at a loss. Been on hold with AA for over an hour trying to ask the questions.

Italian law has only authorized the Covid Free flights through July 31st. So AA shouldn’t be selling any after July 31st.

Delta is currently selling them for flights through October.

Delta is selling them but they are NOT authorized by the Italian Govt. They are just doing it…just in case Italy continues the program….

When I was searching for covid tested flights on aa and United I realized there was only one flight a day that went directly to Milan and all the other options had layovers. That’s how I realized the direct flight must be the covid tested one. That flight was also priced the exact same as all the other airlines’ covid flights so I deduced that it was probably the covid tested flight.

Eric, yes I saw that page, and Christina, you would think so, right? But elsewhere I read some airlines are only doing three COVID flights a week and don't presume the other non-stops are Covid tested. Which is why I didn't book flights. After being on phone for 1 hour and 22 min. on I hold, I gave up. For me, they have to be more clear for me to book with them.

American 240 DFW - FCO is a COVID-tested flight. It is difficult figuring out which American flights are COVID-tested. Knowing that it must be a direct flight helps narrow it down.

I looked that flight up and it did not designate it was a Covid tested flight - how do you know?

I booked my flight 3.5 weeks ago JFK to Milan. At the time Dallas did not have Covid free flights so I booked a separate flight with Jetblue to JFK, stayed two nights (in case of any flight issues), then left on American for Milan. I heard Dallas was in the process of being approved but it had not been when I booked. I found both my flights very reasonably in cost. Everything I was trying to book through AA site routed me through Dallas (coming from CA) which is why I finally just booked a separate flight to JFK. I did my test in NYC (super easy) and filled out my online self declaration form during my taxi ride to the airport. All in all it wasn't bad but it was definitely confusing and I found the AA representatives didn't really have answers. I think after July 1 this might change again here (I believe most of the EU may open if vaccinated, but my vaccination status doesn't mean anything, only the test results). I would look for more info on AA social media platforms as, for some reason, they seem to contain info that you can't easily find on the website. Good luck!
