Passengers? Also, does anybody know when the first revenue flights are supposed to place? Just seems like it is taking so long for it to go in service. And last thing, is it true that the A380 has a problem with the main tire coming off the rim when making turns.

The tire thing you are referering to was just a high stress test where they conducted a narrow turn with a heavily loaded A380 with the center main gear turning disengaged. This made the tires drag very nastily on the tarmac and create some damage to it however the tires never actually came off.

There are some photos of this floating around, perhaps if you search for this in the forums here you'll find them.
