    Seems like BA is developing a chauffeur service for its First passengers, according to this microsite:


    Unless I missed it, it doesnt say if this is a paid for extra or ‘free’


    A shame that it does not feature a UK built car such as the Jaguar XJ – would have had better brand consistancy – BA try to feature this in sourcing items such as some food / amenity items.


    but I bet the IFE screen in the car will be vastly better than the one in the aircraft….


    I don’t believe this is a fully formed offering from Luxhire, seems to be more of a beta site for a proposed offering.

    BA does offer a Jag for flights booked on its Australian website:

    Chauffeur Drive is available at Sydney International Airport only for new reservations sold and ticketed in Australia from 01 July 2013 on British Airways flight numbers BA16/15 only. Codeshare flights not permitted.

    Transfers are available up to 50km radius with an optional additional charge beyond the complimentary radius.

    Reservations must be made at least 48 hours prior to departures and changes are subject to availability.

    Chauffeur drive is only available to First class passengers with a confirmed reservation in F & A class. Waitlisted, Z class reservations, complimentary upgrades, redemption or travel agent discount tickets are not eligible.

    An adult customer 12 years and over is eligible for one transfer. Children under 12 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and not travelling as an unaccompanied minor.

    Jaguar vehicles are not guaranteed and are subject to availability. If the vehicle type is not available, an alternate prestige vehicle will provide the luxury transfer with nil compensation.

    First Class Chauffeur drive collection times will be confirmed at the time of reservation and are not negotiable. The driver will wait for a maximum 15 minutes from confirmed reservation time only. If a customer fails to cancel or arrive within 15 minutes for the booked transfer the complimentary service cannot be rebooked in conjunction with the same reservation or ticket number.

    First Class Chauffeur Drive is provided by a third party supplier and not by British Airways. British Airways is not responsible for the acts or omissions of such suppliers, or for any deficiency in the facilities and services offered. British Airways has no liability for loss, personal injury, or death incurred during the use of such facilities and services.
