Hangzhou - Lanzhou Trains vs. Flights

Considering the trip duration and cost, flight has much advantage than train. Airlines often release lower discount one or two weeks before the departure date. For example, the price for the 60% off ticket is only CNY750 including the tax, nearly the same price as a soft sleeper ticket on the slow overnight train, and cheaper than a second class seat on the high speed train. The flights are available from early morning till the late afternoon. Both direct and stop-over flights are available. The stop-over flights requiring about 5 hours will sometimes have rather lower discount than the direct ones, which normally take about 3 hours.
