Not sure if there's a difference for checking in luggage in Business Class but found this thread that could answer your question

How early can I check in?

At HKG it's strictly within 24 hours. Last time I was 25 hours out and didn't feel like carrying my check-in luggage to my hotel and carry it back the next day. The agent made me sit and wait an hour before he would accept it. This is at at the F-counter with my status as DM and full J-fare C class ticket.

So yes, they are strict about it. Probably more airport rule than their rule.

Sounds like a potential DYKWIA moment.

Nope, if I wanted to pull DYKWIA the statement would of gone another way. Merely pointing out all the details (DM, full fare C class, F counter) merely to show Cathay is strict on its policy on this regard, and there's little chance they will bend the rules to show goodwill in this instance.

In-town check-in for CX is available one calendar day ahead of the flight (not 24 hours), except AFAIK the North American flights.

You can't even start to do online check-in 5 days in advance....

Or you can drop the bag at the HKG luggage storage.... As long as you can pay the bill
