When 20 kms in the air... The cabin pressure is your life.

I would suggest 200 kts for a heavy loaded, otherwise around 190 kts

There is no simple answer to any aeroplane's landing speed! If you've the patience to meticulously weigh up all the variables internal configuration weights, pax and fuel loads, distribution and any effect on c of g etc etc then external factors such as altitude of airport, outside temperature,adverse weather etc. Do that for all the Flightgear planes available and you become one hell of a good pilot! Real pilots fly a limited number of planes and have developed their experience on each type over time.
take a look at this ---> http://www.b737.org.uk/vspeeds.htm#Landing_V_Refs_
and work it out!
Alternatively just fly the plane and before you land, go to a safe height and test the stalling speed clean and with various flap settings and approach to land using a safe additional amount of speed above the stall! Rule of thumb 50 knots extra should keep you safe from disaster in most airliners. Never flown anything that big myself (so 50 knots is a very rough guess!). It's what I'd do if ever I found myself stuck at the controls because the regular crew had gone AWOL, bailed out or were otherwise incapacitated!

higher landing speed, bigger runway

Absolutely ! Especially if loaded to the gunnels, downhill runway, tail wind, snow on deck, high altitude airfield, oil leak on brakes, reverser failure etc etc.

FWIW, the latest version of the A380 in the development repository, now calculates the Vref and Vls speeds for you on approach.
On the MCDU, click on the APPR tab after you have descended to at least 10 000ft you can select either flap 3 or flap full configuration.
Note that the calculation is only updated when you change to that page.

The development repository at https://gitorious.org/airbus-aircraft/a380 will sometimes contain an aircraft that doesn't work properly, at the moment I'm trying to get it into a stable release to work with 2.12 release, but there are a few small bugs.. :shock:
