I would presume that an increase in cruise speed would entail more work than is sensible for Boeing... A difference of a Mach 0.01 in cruise speed is purely for marketing purposes anyway. For London to Sydney, that equates to just around 13 minutes less cruise time at 35,000ft.

My guess as an amateur is that you can fly pretty fast with gear down if you want because of the thin air up there. The increase in drag coefficient (due to gear down) and squared increase of speed would likely outweigh the decrease in air density, which would make the 777-9 gear-down setup still h...
