Easier said than done. I assume LHR curfew and slots constrain the VS timings. As a result the VS flights from HKG-LHR probably don't have much latitude to reach London much earlier. Nor do they have much latitude to depart London much later. So they are stuck with a late afternoon arrival into HKG and late evening departure from HKG.
So what does that mean for VA? You run two hours later, which means reducing outbound connection to 4.5 hrs but increase inbound to 4.5 hrs as well. And what is the significance of the HX feed (which we don't know)? +2 hrs later arrival into HKG could eliminate 7-8 HX flights you feed to.
