CST-100 not flying until 2018 now

So Boeing, with nearly double the budget of SpaceX to produce a less capable design, is now running late too? (shocked face)
Just shows the difference in attitude- Boeing are just in it for the money while SpaceX are thinking bigger with Dragon, which may end up having a long life as an in-space transport, escape craft and landing craft for moons, asteroids and planets. I’ll be surprised if CST-100 ever flies a mission outside beyond the CCtCap program. I'll also bet that if there is a follow on like with CSR2 they don't get a contract (by that point I expect Blue Origin and maybe others to fly). If Boeing and the other

On the plus side at least Lockheed-Martin didn't get the contract....
