Chauffeur Drive Service now in BKK RIO BUE and DUB

Not sure if this was reported here earlier but good news for everyone:
As of today all these destinations (BKK began 1 Jan, RIO/BUE from 3 Jan, and DUB 9 Jan) have the chauffeur drive provided for J and F.

I know BKK was a sticky one for many.

Thanks for posting!

"Itineraries which are exclusively between Bangkok and Hong Kong are not eligible for Chauffeur-drive. Excess mileage charged at THB 35 per km for First Class and Business Class. Payment can be made in cash or by credit card."

Does this mean that if I am flying DXB - BKK stopover then BKK-HKG on another day I can still get the pick up in BKK on the way to HK since my itinerary includes DXB? This is different from the HKG wording:

Not available in areas requiring special entrance permits (e.g., Ma Wan, Discovery Bay or Huangang control point).
Not valid for flights between Hong Kong-Bangkok and vice versa.

I had always assumed that being able to book it online meant that you automatically qualified but there are reports of being denied the car after being able to book it online:

I am able to book the car online for my BKK-HKG flight in HKG and I'm pretty sure I won't actually get the car..

I have two DXB<->BKK bookings in F and two BKK <->HKG bookings in F in March and May and none of those bookings are allowing me to reserve a BKK Chauffeur Drive online, it doesn't even present an option for Chauffeur Drive in BKK. Is this something that one must call Emirates to book?

Athens would be handy!

Pretty bad it's not offered already to be honest.
