434 Passengers versus 516 passengers is why the A380 makes business sense (¢ents). Both are based on Air France configurations (Two class on 747, four class on A380).

Awesome video. Typical MMMMX hazy conditions make it perfect.

Question about the video. It looks like only the inboard engines have the reverse thursters operating. Does the 380 only have reverse on the inboards or is it typically to only use 2 of the 4?

You're actually right, the 380 has thrust reversers on the inboard engines only. Airbus made this decision so as to prevent FOD from accidentally striking the aircraft's wings on reverse thrust (Since they hang out so far) on some runways that are 150ft wide instead of the usal 200). Also, the braking system does a pretty good job to make up for the lack of two more reversers.
