Astonishing how small theay kept the throttle levers.
Strong resemblence in size to the minor forces required due to electronic signals sent to the servo motors

Notice the flap and spoiler sticks on the far right of the picture, the one in the upper part is the flap lever and the one on the bottom is the spoiler one, usual to find those in that place on an airbus flight deck! the qwerty keyboard and mice with scroll wheel are really amazing!!! as well as the very very large LCD displays... and Ughhh!!! who scratched the paint on one corner in the left side of the pedestal??? a big ouch for that!

Flap and spoiler levers are always in this type of position on Airbus's.

Love the shot. really shows how much technology there is in that bird. There is only 2 reversers as only engines no.2&3 are fitted with reverse thrust. don't know why this is

Really good shot, what is really appreciated by pilots is the keypad frequency selector, much faster than the usual knobs

Notice the one glaring omission..... NO trim wheel. It's about time !!

The thrust levers (not 'throttles'), are the same as their smaller brethren's, and no reversers on the outboards are, I deduce, for a couple of reasons.... mainly to reduce FOD-related problems at the edge of the runway due to the huge wingspan, and because certifying its awesome landing performance assumes the reversers are INOP anyway.

Notice how clear the screens are on the A380.

Nice touch-how there's only reverse thrust on engines 2 and 3; probably because 1 and 4 hang too far off the centerline of most runways, they'd be reversing above grass and dirt!

There are 2 reasons why there is only 2 reversers on the 380:
Primary reason is that it actually does not need 4 reverses due to incredible landing performance and huge power generated by the 2 inboard engines. Secondary is that the outer engines are too far out and might accidentally ingest foreign objects on certain runways...
