<<"Personally I think it takes too long for a day trip. If you stay in Lucerne you can consider Mount Titlis as an alternative.">>
Arno has it right. It is too long a trip. However, at least one forum member has reported here that they got up early in Luzern and did that very very long round trip. They thought it was worth it.
To each his own. I have traveled to Switzerland about 80 times since 1980, and have never felt that the Jungfraujoch journey was worth the cost. Most others disagree.
If you want to make that trip, keep a close eye on the weather. Especially in the Alps, the weather is very changeable in April. Clouds up top at the Jungfrau mean that you pay a lot of money to see the insides of clouds.
Talk to Tourist Info near track #1 in Luzern to learn about the weather at Jungfrau before you travel. Forecast are not very accurate beyond 24 hours, and do not come with guarantees. There are also many other sources for weather info..
Check the timetable to plan the journey, as others have suggested.
