Assuming 4 nozzles at 40 psi with a 261200 L uplift...48 minutes according to Airbus.

See section 5-2-1 of this document:

That would be from zero to full, most aircraft land with fuel still in their tanks, and even on their longest routes (LAX-MEL) the A380 is not being filled to the top.

An A380 holds 323546 L of fuel...how is a 261200 L uplift going from zero to full?
