There is indeed very good reason to consider the FFP operator's available cash to make good on its marketed commitment to FFP customers. Available cash to pay for award ticket redemption demand is indeed a critical element in determining the going-concern possibility/valuation of the FFP/FFP unit. Declining available cash -- including for internal budget allocation for FFP redemption -- is indeed a warning sign for the FFP customers and FFP operator's shareholders.
