In the most extreme scenario CX could simply be barred from operating to the EU if it refused to pay any fine.

If CX did not operate in the EU, it could still fall afoul of the GDPR if it handled EU passengers' data improperly, but there would not be much recourse if it didn't pay.

This is akin to the case where a Danish citizen purchased Cuban cigars from Germany, but unfortunately the bank transfer went through US banks and was seized due to the US embargo. The US could not normally enforce its embargo outside the US, but the participants unwittingly involved the US and suffered for it.
