About:Transfer in T3 of Beijing Capital Airport

D --> I transfer at Beijing Capital Airport, what to do with checked baggage?

I am looking at flying from Lijiang (LJG) to PEK to Boston (BOS). Air China to PEK and then Delta to BOS. Arrive PEK Terminal 3, depart to BOS Terminal 2. Would have 170 minutes to transfer. Is this reasonable? Do we have to retrieve and recheck luggage? I want clear on that in the procedure above. I have not flown through PEK before. Thanks for the help!

The transfer time is a little bit tight. As I know, you don't need to retrieve and recheck the luggage at PEK.
For the domestic to international transfer, the procedures are the following:
Inspection & Quarantine, Exit and Entry Frontier Inspection - Baggage Claim - Customs Inspection - Going through Transfer Formalities - Security Check - Waiting & Boarding

You have to re- check your bags from an internal china city if you are connecting in PEK to an international city. I am in PEK international departure hall right now coming in from Chengdu. They would only check my bags to PEK and i have to re heck to LAX.
