The plane must have been pretty light to climb directly to FL400 out of MIA. I think most of us would fly 240 knots clean in a B-763 even at max landing weight.

Which STAR did they fly with GILLL in it?

Did they fly the LINKK ONE GIRLY TRANSITION? The next waypoint after GILLL has a 210 knot speed constraint, they were taken off the STAR on vectors but maybe the call was made for flaps 1 in anticipation of slowing with some stall margin for the bumps.
