The same flight starting from Milan is Euro 423 or roughly $473.

Why does it always cost more US-IT-US rather than the other way round?

Maybe it is because the flight going west originates in Dubai and is committed to continue onward to NYC, so they want to fill the plane. The law of supply and demand: More people in NYC want to go to Milan/Italy during the summer than people in Italy want to go to NYC/America. Emirates is trying to tempt people to go with a lower price. The sudden present sale may have something to do with terror attack in Belgium, and people thinking twice about a European vacation, maybe especially flying a non-European or non-American airline to get there.

First of all American and Delta both quote prices of Euro 403.

But this is not a once off problem. I have frequently paid for tickets for clients travelling from the US and it is ALWAYS higher if the trip starts from the US.

Why?

Why? Different market, different price characteristic.
