Most important the nights and flight devaluation.
Why is that most important? Do we know what's happening with all SPG airline partners in August? What if their transfer ratio is devalued somehow...? That would be a big blow to SPG value... Is there any DP that SPG value is safe??

The packages were always the most valuable use for them, although making less uses for it may lower the demand thereby lowering the market price.

How much higher did they go up in value after the merger? SPG has always been worth a lot.

No one could answer this as there is no real answer. UR should have a better rate, Both options are the same for selling.
