It should do well because:
i) HKG is on the great circle route, SIN and BKK are a slight diversion, so it's shorter and potentially slightly faster
ii) If you're into airports HKG is second to none.
iii) If you want a stop over in Asia, I would definitely choose HKG over SIN or BKK
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

So, I can get Asia Miles on CX, BA, QF but not VS. I guess that is why HK remains a monopoly. I'm going to use Finnair next time, because of that oyster bar airside on the upper floor. Can you still smoke there and do you also get Asia Miles on AY?
