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

The spacecraft’s program manager, Mark Nappi, told reporters Thursday (April 25) that the company is very focused on flying the first Starliner assignment for NASA with astronauts on board. That mission, the Crew Flight Test (CFT), will see NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams rocket into space aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket on May 6 at the earliest.
