OK, so looking at the original EXPLAIN the order of processing seems to be:
1. v_sat_request is evaluated and filtered on login='...' (lines 7..15)
This gives us 31 rows

This involves the subquery scan on vsp (from line 16) where it seems to
think the best idea is a merge join of programs to sequences.

Whel basically v_sc_packages depends on other 3 views that are just a simple
interface to a plain table.

If I execute a select only on this table I get reasonable executions time:

I don't know what you think you're measuring, but it's nothing to do with the plans. If you look at the plans carefully, you'll see they're all the same. The "cost" numbers change because that's the parameter you're changing.

I'm not sure it makes sense to vary cpu_tuple_cost from 0.07 down to 0.001 - that's a factor of 70 difference. I might be tempted to halve or double it, but even then only after some serious testing.
