Views simply get expanded to a full query, so the views have nothing to
do with it.

Make sure that they've run analyze on the entire database. Upping
default_statistics_target to 100 is probably a good idea as well.

If that doesn't work, get an explain analyze of the query and post it
here. You can try posting just an explain, but that's much less useful.
