Almost every time I have seen a QF A380 take off at LAX, the a/c used runway 25L ( one time they used 24), when 747s, 777s, A340s, and 767s takes off, they use 25R. I thought runway 25R was LAX longest runway, so why the worlds biggest airliner is using to shorter runway? Is 25L more re-enforce than 25R?

Could be the allowable weight is higher for 25L. Other considerations might be a difference in the obstacles evaluation and climb gradient is lower for 25L or the outer parallel taxiways may be too close so the aircraft is restricted to using the outboard runways on either side of the airport.  Confused

Just some old fashioned guessing at best!
