All three airlines know how to fly a First Class passenger in style.
I assume you even could fly BA outbound and CX on the return (or vice versa) on one ticket, if you want to sample both products.
EK like you say has the charm of operating the A380 with its luxurious First Class. The trip is longer, but the stopover can be seen as a positive or negative thing.
When flying in Eco, it is a welcomed opportunity to stretch your legs (and arms).
When flying in First, I would see that stop as an interruption of my attempt to sleep all the way on the flight from HKG to LHR.
Therefore I would prefer the nonstop service between the two cities - and then would go for CX-metal (and hospitality), if timings are suitable.

Personally, I would do EK F (even though I find the Suites rather hideous in design) because the difference in cost is more than justified by the sheer spaciousness of the A380 F, the elaborate and much higher quality food and beverage service, the limo transfers both ends and the novelty of A380 in F.

I'm pretty sure he meant BA Club World, not BA and CX. CX F is likely much more expensive than BA CW or EK F.
