Possibly for maintenance or paint shop?

I don't think so.. it taxiied over to the back side of the terminal and was received by a lot of cars. Medical diversion? Or a VIP?

Could been an incident with GA88 or GA89, the flight from AMS to CGK via AUH and vice versa...

Indonesia's president arrived in Hungary for a state visit today:

Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

Had it been the president of the U.S. rather than Indonesia, there would have been an ambulance, as I believe there always is in any U.S. presidential motorcade.
