My father went to the launch today at Bahrain International Airport.
The livery is apparently very smart, and they have cleaned up the "Gulf Air" text on the fuselage. The Falcon is also much more prominent on the tail. The livery is just part of a total rebranding of the airline, including some apparently very swish Business Cards!!
Only one aircraft, an A330-200 is painted at present. The aircraft I believe has now flown to Abu Dhabi, for the launch there. Then it should go onto the European routes (LHR, CDG, FRA) so a prize to whom can get a pic of it first!

A4O-KE, sporting the new Gulf Air C/S came earlier this afternoon in Muscat (from Bahrain) for a quick official presentation: Outstanding beauty, I have to say!
The contrast between the gold, the white and the marine blue colors serves pretty much the lines of the A332 although some blue in the tail would have looked even nicer, in my own opinion.
Smart detail: The 3 national flags of the 3 countries owning GF are showing side by side on the aft of the fuselage (close to the rear door).
Sorry, no pic to show you as I was at work and we (ATC) didn't get any warning on this special flight. She didn't stay long enough to allow me to go home pick up my camera and negociate a special photo permit. I'm sure anyway some photogs will get her tomorrow in LHR!
