This is the first time I have heard of such door operation. Will this be standard on the A380? If so, will it be standard for all doors, or just the main boarding doors (and what doors would those be)?

Quoting Mhodgson (Reply 2): I believe the 767 has this (or a similar system) fitted - I have seen it used on BY B763s before.
Along with the DC-10 and MD-11. Powered doors are usually used on up-and-over type doors, where the door slides upward inside the roof of the fuselage. On the 767-200 door 1L is powered. On the -300, 1L and 2L are powered. I'm not too sure about the other doors though....
