The sudden reduction of speed would have been due to magnetic waves created by solar flares erupted from the coronal hole of the sun.

Hope after all test are finished and if the cause is not found Boeing you needs to install an equipment to monitor the magnetic waves at high altitude.

Wishing success for 787 Dreamliner
