Question HKG-PEK/PEK-HKG same a/c turn?

Hello, I tried to answer this via the search as I recall seeing it mentioned at some point previously but couldn't find it. So apologies in advance.

Is it possible to do a HKG-PEK-HKG same a/c turnaround? Most of the turns are 1 hour or so. MCT at PEK is 2 hours. I assume that CX/KA will be able to issue the boarding pass in HKG for the return sector.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thank you in advance.

I won't count on it - the train from T3C towards immigration is less than frequent and queues ridiculously long. Nor is the transfer desk always staffed (my experience from an evening arrival in PEK).

No need to go to T3C for such transit......

...but my recommendation remains unchanged: Don't consider PEK if you are trying to do a MR...
