So I've been saving my miles to redeem them on the Star Alliance to go to Europe. I've done it before and although its a real pain calling them and playing the game (using the ANA tool), but its very worth it when you can actually get a ticket for 50k instead of the premium you have to pay in miles to get a ticket in the normal DM system. So my question is do I rush out and cash in my miles while I still can in the Star Alliance, or do I sit on them and hope that we find a way to use them at reasonable rates in the merged programs. I looked at redeeming miles in AA's current program and I could actually find a flight around the time of year I wanted to go for 50,000 miles.

I'll add that I'd rather sit on them b/c we just had a new baby so traveling in the next year or two is not ideal for us right now. But I'd rather not have my miles get de-valued either.
