Beijing – Macau Flight

To save time, many passengers choose to travel by Macau to Beijing flight instead of Macau to Beijing train, and vice versa. About 10 direct flights are operated between the two cities daily. A single trip takes about 4/4.5 hours. Full price for an economy class seat is over CNY2,300. However, when the airlines provide discounts in low season, the ticket fare for an economy class seat may be low to CNY800 or so. In this case, flight trip will be a more preferable choice, especially for those who are tight in time.

I was told the minimum time needed is 10min for local people by using a "Transfer" service. It should works to international travelers too but I am not sure if it is easy to find this "Transfer" service. Considering the language problem, I feel it is safer to have longer time to figure it out. If you have no other options than 22min, it worth a risk.

It should be offered to soft sleeper ticket holder only. I never heard there is meal offered to second class seat. If you book second class, you may buy your own food instead.

When I search online, I can see there is a D923 shows for some dates?
Is this a direct train or not? Why it only shows on some dates? Sold out or not available?
