CX day flights to Europe other than London?

Hi All,

I need to fly from HKG to anywhere in Europe and my preference is a day flight. I am reluctant to fly directly to London.

Which European cities does CX fly directly to during the day?

May I ask you, why do you prefer a day flight to Europe? In my view you waste a full day on the day flights compared to the night flights where you have a full day in HKG and arrive early morning for a full day in LHR (or elsewhere) - provided of course that you are able to get a least some hours of sleep during the flight. I would take the night flight any day rather than the (feels like) very long day flights. Just my two cents

The day flights let you enjoy the flight (eat, watch some movies, maybe nap but not for too long) without the pressure to try to get a full night’s rest. Then you arrive in Europe, get home or to a hotel and sleep in a proper bed.

I find this much easier for jet lag and much more relaxing than trying to fight through a full day on arrival.

Lots of people prefer the more “efficient” night flight. To each their own!

I agree with CXYYZ - I'd much rather take the day flight, stay awake, enjoy CX F, Krug, etc then get to Europe ready to sleep.

But I'm retired. It was different when I was a road warrior and di things like SIN-HKG via CDG so I could have a meeting there.
