Does anyone know why there was a Gulf Air A340 in Sydney today?
It was parked in the parking bay next to the regulars, British Airways & V Australia this morning.

From this thread

New Zealand Aviation Thread #65 (by 777ER Nov 7 2009 in Civil Aviation)

it appears that it may have been a refuelling stop on the way to WLG

Quoting 777ER,reply=164 in the above thread :

A Gulf Air A340 landed in WLG as flight GF8301 at 5.30pm from SYD with the Bahrain soccer team on board to play the All White's at the Westpac Stadium this weekend.

Moderation in all things ... including moderation ;-)
