I have been to America many times, the last time with my 8 months old baby....and believe me...you will want the direct flight. $1600 just isn't worth the hassle and stress

Based on that info def direct

Direct for sure.

Direct flight though if money was the issue I would check out whether Hong Kong has a day hotel in the airport. I would want somewhere to base the kids.

I may have read this wrong so please correct me. The OP has said an that the cheap option is and 9hr + 12hr flight or direct is 14hrs.
If this is right I wouldn't hesitate going direct and paying the extra rather than doubling the travel time.

I would personally take the cheaper option. I once did a flight to Lebanon that was 16 hours direct to dubai the 1 hour stop over and 8 hours again. It was grueling and tiring....As an adult.
2 years ago we did an 8 hour flight with my 2 year old and he was awful on the flight. Wouldn't sit still. Wanted to run up and down the aisles...no amount of junk would calm him down or use of a tablet. In the end we just let him run up and down. He cried so much cause he was restricted in movement. ...would climb all over my husband and I.... I would've even taken and option of a stopover then.
$1600 is a lot of money when your on holidays. But that's just me and I've only got 1 kid.
I'd think about how your little ones will cope on such a long flight too.

If money truly isn't an issue I'd go direct. Once you're on the flight and in the throes of jetlag during stopovers and extendrd flying time with emotional kidss you would be happy to pay that money to make the suffering end!

thats a tricky one
I would take the cheaper flight if money is an issue ... $1600 buys a lot of extra holiday
but if you have the money - money buys relaxation and less stress of a direct flight ...
