Geneva to Venice, Italy via Train or Plane?

Need sugguestions as to traveling from Geneva to Venice? You would think fastest by plane, however I'm finding low cost airlines for 6-April; 1 stop = 9hrs - 10hrs to arrive in Venice. a whole day in the airport. If it takes a whole day to travel by plane, why not take a train?? Would like to take a night train.. sleep in a bed on the train over night then wake up fresh & ready to visit Venice. Problem, it's confusing to buy train ticket on-line in advance.

Need an expert to help solve this issue please. Show me the way!!

Have a look at http://www.darwinairline.com/. They operate a direct flight. If you prefer the train, http://www.rail.ch has it all.

I would take the day train, the trip from Geneva to Milano is very scenic, straight through the alps.
