I don't have kids yet but we flew to the UK via Singapore and booked the cheaper flights that had an 8 hr stoppover in Singapore. There was a transit hotel in the airport and we paid $80 for a hotel room, for 7 hours I think. It was clean and we had a sleep for about 5-6 hours, then showered and went back out ansd got on the plane. We were a lot more refereshed that those who had wandered around for the 8 hours. It might be worth looking into whether thats an option at HK airport

$1600 is a huge amount of money that I'd much prefer to use as spending money on my holiday so I'd definitely take the cheaper flight.

I would definitely take the direct flight if you can afford it. Extended plan trips are awful...no way I would want to wrangle kids for that many extra hours.

considering the time and hassel you'd be saving I would really consider the direct flight, but as others have said it depends how much the $1600 is worth to you!

Thanks everyone at this stage we are going to take the direct flight but going to hold off buying until November because Air NZ have their USA specials around nov-dec according to the lovely lady I spoke to and even though that is another stop over option it isn't anywhere as long as going via Hong Kong, plus they have the option of sky couches which might be worth it with the kids.
