Extra long runway? Where did you get that from, the A380 requires no more runway than the 747 series.
Once the A380 gets over the stigma of insinuations and preconceptions like yours, it will do fine. Theres absolutely no reason why this aircraft wont be as normal to fly than any other aircraft you get onto at an airport.

As a passenger aircraft, I think the A380 will ultimately be a flop in the grand scheme of things as it is only designed for a very few routes. I think ultimately it will be an excellent frieghter though.
