Are you serious????? The standard "convention" on jetliner cockpits are: Throttles in the middle, speedbrakes to the left, flaps to the right... but they don't have to be right next to each other... generally, the stabilizer trim indication/mech is next to the throttles... as they're very closely related in terms of use/activities.

A300/310:

See the throttles with the reverser levers on it?
The speedbrake lever is to the left of it...

Other Airbuses:
Speedbrake lever to the rear and left of the throttles...
Reversers on the A340 have a reverse actuation levers...
Reversers on 320/330 you actually bring it to idle, then lift two little notches, and bring it behind idle to give it reverse...
You can see the release locks for the reverse here, forward side of the throttles:

The 330 has the same standard reverse lever configuration as the 340. Only the 320 series has the different config.
