I have no idea what "selling points" there were/are for any airliner.... I don't buy airliners.
The information I provided was based upon personal observations and interpretations from having flown aircraft with both engines on multiple similar flight legs under similar environmental conditions. Unfortunately, the differences in airframe performance can easily override any observed/perceived differences in engine performance. If one can find same airframe/different engine combinations to make more accurate observations with, it would be interesting to see/discuss. Until then, this was the best info I can provide. Sorry.
