I'll travel on AF A380 from CDG-LHR next monday and I want to take the opportunity to take some on-board shots. What would you guys suggest to get the best on-board shots? What is worth being photographed and how do you get to take the photos? Thanks for your answers in advanced.

Take pictures of anything that takes your eye. Don't expect an image of the onboard IFE to get accepted here however.
Enjoy the Whale, it's amazing. Try to get upstairs, IMO it's a better deck, less noise if anything. I asked for access to the flightdeck on arrival into CDG but was denied. The crew, btw, was pretty good but nothing I'll remember. The choice of food ran out on both legs too....

Take a look at photos which are on the database already and see if you like any of them. Shots from the aisles of a section of Economy might be a starting point. You'll have to pick the right seats if you want any good window shots because the A380 windows are pathetically small. Analyse the photos when you get home and see what you could improve on for next time.

In terms of technical aspects of cabin shots, I'm sure everyone has certain basic settings, what works for me (with my Canon 17-55/2.8 IS lens) is usually ISO400, F4.0 (or higher to increase DOF) and 1/15 (usually still sharp with the IS) and then adjust for the light conditions.
