Is the bullet train punctual?

I am planning my trip to China and considering to take a flight from Haikou to Guilin scheduled at 13:30. I think I'll have plenty of time that morning to reach Haikou from Sanya either by plane or bullet train.

Does the bullet train run on time? There is a route from Sanya to Meilan Airport (D7312 scheduled at 10:00-12:04). Is this too risky for me to take or should I take a much earlier one? The earlier train that goes to Haikou Airport is D7304 - scheduled for 7:30-9:23; a bit too early and it means waiting 4 hours at the airport.

Thanks for your tips.

Yes, the bullet train is on time,generally. However, due to bad weather, such as typhoon, it will delay.

Delay is very rare but is possible under bad weather especially thunder or typhoon.
