Just going by figures available to the public. Assuming sea level, ISA conditions, no obstacles, and no wind, an 380-800 needs around 5200 meters at MTOW.

This seems like a lot...

max MTOW currently sits at ~575t ( the diagram goes to ~~635t )

if you feed that into the diagram FIGURE-3-3-1-991-008-A01 ( GP7200 ) you require slightly more than 3000m.
With no engine out mishap real take off distance will be (quite a bit) shorter.

( and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A3 ... ifications says 3000m )

That sounds much more reasonable. I just looked where the curve ended . :D
