Clearly taking a lot from the A380. Does Airbus give any indication as to how long it will take to convert from a 330/340 to a 350 (and indeed, given the similarity, from a 350 to a 380/vice versa)?

Although being a short video it does give a nice impression of the latest Airbus cockpit. It looks very good imho.

IIRC a few weeks

They are trying to keep a common type rating between 330/350, as many airlines will be flying both types. Looking at it it certainly looks like a more tricked out A330 cockpit, the fundamental operating philosophy will basically be the same even if there are a few more/more technologically advanced gadgets in the cockpit.

The big question that I have had for some time is the design of the A320NEO cockpit. Will Airbus still stick to the old layout or go with the A380/A350 displays etc.? The A320 is already pretty cramped for space so I doubt they would be able to add in the additional EFB screens in the same layout as the A350/A380, but perhaps they will go with the larger integrated screens for the PFD/ND, EWD/SD and MCDU

Well, the B737 has screens as well. And that cockpit is a lot smaller then the A320-cockpit. So space will not be the big problem on the A320.
