IMO, I grant not everyone who lugs many bottles of wine aboard is doing so to save money. But many are doing it for just that reason.
Yes, there are some who really want their 'wine of choice' for their oh so special event but the overwhelming majority want the savings. It is what it is and as long as HAL permitted it, no problem. HAL will cease to permit. The party is over.
