This is my first time not on a direct flight to my final destination.
I'm flying from Beijing to Manila with a stop in Xiamen. When I check in at Beijing, does the first flight count as a domestic or international flight?

I flew out of Beijing in November. The departure boards and my boarding pass both told me a gate with a letter and a number. I believe mine was E7. The signs then said both International/Domestic (more complicated than that because Macao, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are not international in China's opinion, so it's "International plus Macao, Hong Kong, and Taiwan" / "Domestic") as well as indicating the letters, eg "E Gates."
As a result you're unlikely to get it wrong. That said, it seems likely that your first leg will be domestic, and you'll do an international departure (including passport checks) in Xiamen.
