I think HKG IS the answer, as CX operates 12 A330s and 14 A340s, many of them on shorter Asian routes, making them appear several times a day. Additionally, Dragonair with five A330s is also based in HKG.
You can't see as many in FRA and CDG as LH and AF fly their A340s on long-haul routes, making them rarer than CX's in HKG.
By the way, don't forget the other airlines flying into HKG with A330/340, like Korean Air, Thai, Garuda or Malaysia.

Zurich perhaps not yet but in an few years. Swissair operates at the moment 16 A 330 out of ZRH and in two years they will get at least 11 a 340-600. There are also other airlines which operate 330 and 340 to ZRH (e.g. Cathay, Emirate some times, )

DeltAirlines, as much as I'd love to see BOS have the most A330/340 operators, it just isn't so. JFK gets Aer Lingus, SABENA, Lufthansa, Austrian, Swissair, Gulf Air, Kuwait Airways, and Iberia. Toronto gets a lot of Air Canada A340's. Chicago gets Aer Lingus, Austrian, Swissair, SABENA, Iberia, and Kuwait Airways.

LH423 - Gulf Air stopped flying to JFK a number of years ago. However there is a rumour they are thinking about starting again.
Speaking of which, Bahrain and Dubai have quite a few A330/A340 ops - Bahrain for Gulf Air and Emirates A330s, Gulf Air A340s and also Monarch A330s stopping on the way to Male etc. Dubai obviously has loads of EK A330s plus those of SriLankan of which Emirates is a major shareholder.

I'm not sure if HKG is the airport with the most A330/A340, but I've heard Americans saying that they are dying to see an A330. In HKG, there are so many A330s that I get mad at them, I don't want to see any of those! (The same is for 777-300. You might want to see it badly, but I'm getting mad at it too, because it's appearing too often!! )
