This summer I’ll be flying from Tokyo Narita on Japan Airlines to Beijing Airport (PEK) to connect to an Air China flight to San Francisco. What is the procedure for connecting to a flight in Beijing? I’ve never been to China so I was hoping someone could give me a rundown of what I will be doing when the plane touches down at PEK.
