Officials say the Boeing Starliner spacecraft will not fly special missions yet

Boeing says it may sign up private astronauts for future Starliner missions, but the focus is on NASA for now.

The company is largely focused on flying NASA's first Starliner mission with astronauts on board, spacecraft program manager Mark Nappi told reporters Thursday (April 25). This mission, the Crew Flight Test (CFT), will see NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Sonny Williams launched into space aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket no later than May 6.
