Malaga to Barcelona

We are traveling in late May from Malaga to Barcelona. I have a few questions:
1. Vueling airlines has a flight but a number of reviews were very critical. I then looked at an Iberian flight, but it is operated by Vueling? Should there be any difference?
2. Do you think there are issues with a checked bag on the flight? Our other travel in Spain will be by train or bus.
3. If we try to stay with a carry-on bag, are the requirements stricter, i.e. does the bag have to be smaller than flying in the US?
4 Flying time is 1 hour 40 minutes. The train takes 5 hrs and 45 minutes. It has been suggested that when you consider times spent at airports the train door to door is close in time and less stressful. Can you agree with this?

Thanks for your help.

Depending on how much your bag(s) weigh - the train might be a better option for you. It looks like its 35 to check a bag, and carry-on including a personal item must weigh under 10 kilograms. The link below will show you the dimensions for carry-on baggage. Happy travels!

Personally, I would take the train.
