Unless you have eligibility to enter the first-class departure lounge as a Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club Diamond or OneWorld Emerald frequent flyer, then your entry would be restricted to the time preceding your departure on a Cathay flight in first class. So HKG-CDG according to your plan. If flying in first class CDG-HKG, you would be eligible to use the Cathay arrival lounge in HKG, but that's not as good as a couple of hours in the departure lounge...

I'm not sure what you think but HKG-CNS is a 7hr flight and is definitly not classed as short haul or domestic.

And what it has to do to original question? I am also curious about this scenario - you arrived in F and nave few hours of layover, but your next fly in J (CX does not offer F to Australia). So are you eligible to visit F lounge? I could not find clear answer either.
