Boeing says Dreamliner offers better value than revamped A330

Boeing has said it is confident that its newer 787 Dreamliner was a more valuable plane than rival Airbus’ revamped A330 passenger jet, Reuters has reported. European planemaker Airbus is close to launching an upgrade of its best-selling jet with new Rolls-Royce engines in an effort to bolster sales in the largest segment by volume for wide-body jets seating more than 250 passengers. “We have more value and have to sell our value, but we will fight, there is no doubt about that,” said Vice President of Marketing at Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Randy Tinseth. “But we also have a better product with better value and that is the card we will play.”
