Specific Award Question [HKG-JFK in J routings]

Hello,

I have tried searching for my question but could not find a specific answer so hoping someone could help.

I want to make an award flight from HKG-JFK in J class, however is it possible to route this so I could have a 23 hour layorver in LHR? Example fly HKG-LHR-JFK?

Not on one award

The general rule is that award travel must be direct from one region to another - in your case from Asia2 to Nth America

There are some specific exceptions to this rule, such as travel from Europe to South West Pacific can be via Asia2 or Asia1
But there is no such exception for your proposed itinerary

An Asia 2 -> North America award does not allow a connection in Europe.

AA.com and the award Sticky give details on Explorer awards.
