Emirates Chauffeur on Qantas Award Flight?

I'm flying Dubai to Birmingham, Business Class on an emirates flight (Tagged EK) booked as a Partner Classic Award through Qantas. Am I eligible for a pickup, even though booked through qantas?

My understanding is that EK Chauffeur service is only available on paid fares - not on award seats.

I have just flown business class with emirates back from the UK  using my Qantas frequent flyers and I got chauffeur drive. If you go into your booking it should come up as an option.

I concur with Sim 1, you will be eligible for chauffeur drive, I too just travelled business on a QF flight on a Classic award flight to New York and received the chauffeur drive, and also on return flight on the Emirates flight on Classic award. I too was under the presumption that it was only for paid fares and was pleasantly surprised to be able to book the transfers.

I also flew on Emirates in Business on an award seat and got the chauffer drive so it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks AusFlyer, 

I just saw that my flight went from 'confirmed', to ticketed, and driver option opened up!

777 300 ER on Emirates is 2-3-2 in Business - what made them think a middle seat is good????
