How different is the soon to be built Airbus A350 from the A330? Will there be much of a market for it compared with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner?

different engines (same as those to be used on the 787), more use of composites in the aircraft structure, more efficient, longer range. thats all i know off the top of my head.

Its target market is essentially that of the 787 and the 777-200ER. Airbus plans to place the A350-800 strategically between the 787 models in seating capacity while the A350-900 has been termed the 777-200ER "killer" in that it will have similar seating capacity, but superior economics.
