If not mistaken, the flight numbers were SK991/992. Mid-morning arrival at
HKG and departure by lunchtime.

Thanks for the info - looking at the pics of SAS at Kai Tak, it looks like the lunchtime departure sounds right. So it would arrive at
CPH at around 4-5 PM and depart at around 6 PM.
I figure it would have taken around 11 hours each way (since it's around 12 hours coming from LHR).

I believe an SAS manager said last yr said they're considering returning to Hong Kong over the next few years or something similar.
Can any of you folks in the know shed any light on this? Any developments?

Lufthansa still has a departure time around lunch. They get into
HKG a little after ten in the morning.

Daytime departure to Europe --
KLM only runs a noon time nonstop to Amsterdam as well from Hong Kong.
It was quite a nice sight to see the Boeing 767-300ER landing and taking off at Kai Tak.
