Domestic to international at HKT (BKK-HKT-FRA)

I just booked my flight from Bangkok to Frankfurt on TG (J):
​​​​​​BKK-HKT TG205 09:30-10:55
HKT-FRA TG926 12:50-19:05

Can anybody inform me about the procedures at BKK and HKTHKT, e.g.
- Check in BKK: domestic or international?
- Baggage: checked through to FRA or collect/re check in at HKT?
- CIQ handling?

Never had a flight home from BKK via another Thai airport
before. Forum posts concentrate on connections at BKK.

I took the same connection one month ago in the other direction.
no problem at all. just got off the plane in HKT, followed BKK connection sign, got a special sticker, did one more security check and waited at the gate. Luggage was checked through of course and kept the same seat number.

Immigration took place in HKT or in BKK?

In HKT. We got a sticker and had to wait at the domestic luggage claim in BKK until the staff opened a door to international luggage section and we could get our bags and pass customs
