Seems trivial when you compare to a) US$15bn in annual revenue (bubbly and wine is about 15 basis points of their annual revenue) and b) the recent announcement by Emirates of a $500mm investment in wine. The latter, while not an annual figure, is over 20x SQ’s annual spend by a carrier with roughly 1.5x SQ’s revenue.
