Transfer AMEX points to my husband's Emirates Skywards Account

I added my husband as an authorized user / cardholder on my AMEX Business Platinum so I could transfer 26K points to his Emirates Skywards account. It keeps getting immediately rejected saying the Skywards account is inactive. When I spoke to Emirates, they said it's possibly because his Skywards account is linked to another AMEX account so we delinked it from his AMEX and it's still not working. Has anybody had success transferring AMEX points to an authorized user's Emirates or other loyalty account?

It appears that Emirates will accept transfers from one, and only one, USA-issued credit card account.

See this discussion from 2017:
