train or fly-Warsaw to Krakow

If I am reading the info on the train site properly, it seems to be about the same price return to either train from Warsaw to Krakow or fly Lot airlines.
Would anyone know the pros or cons of either of these choices.
I have a short amount of time for Krakow. Must come from Warsaw and return to warsaw.

Train is just 3 hrs (www.bahn.de) with departures every hour. You can't travel portal to portal in less time than that by plane.

Thank you for that web site.
I cannot seem to get prices on the site. Am I doing something wrong or do they not give prices.
Thanks

The Polish railways' website is www.pkp.com.pl. Express trains take 2 hours 55 minutes, and the one-way fare is PLN 89 (about $37) in second class or PLN 125 ($52) in first. In Krakow, the station is a short walk from the city centre.

Took the train last year. It was filled to the gills so I advise reservations. The train is city to city. How much will it cost getting to and from airports?

Train! Consider trip to airport, airport to Krakow. Next, age, check for card for seniors...1/2 price! first class may be the same price as second class. Do buy round trip tickets. Lines may be long at Centralia.
