I don’t see any nonstop this time of year (winter). Best price I see in November is $144 USD with a day-long stopover (8.5 hours) in Copenhagen. Cimber Air PRG-CPH / SAS from CPH-HAM. CPH airport is served by both train and metro to the city center in 12-13 minutes.

The train will probably be as fast as a flight with a connection if you figure time to get to/from airports, check-in time, 2 flights and connection time. Fastest train is 6 1/2 hours and as cheap as 39€.

I’m with oldlady then — I just didn’t realize only 6.5 hours between them. Only way I’d try to connect then is if you just want a day in Copenhagen.

Train isn’t really that slow. Any flight takes about 5 hours when you figure time to get to/from airports (airport transportation usually leaves from the train station and takes a minimum of 45 minutes) 2 hour recommended advance check-in and flight time.
