Top speed will be upgraded from 300 to 350 km/h for next summer, so, if you are lucky, you will fly .

That's why I didn't say commercial. We all know that political service always comes first

Yes. I was talking about new HSL.

Actual services take 4:20 in direct trains between Madrid and Barcelona for a similar distance. You run on HSL between Madrid and Tarragona, and the final stretch between Tarragona and Barcelona you hace to use conventional lines.

Yes, from Sants. I've considerer time from estación de Francia to Puerta de Atocha. Sorry.

According to official Renfe timetables, for example:
Alvia nº 01658
Barcelona-Estación de Francia: 15:00
Barcelona-Sants: 15:30
Madrid-Puerta de Atocha:19:30

*Renfe uses 5 minutes of time buffer in that case .
