my vote of 16 is looking a tad optimistic at this point.... but I'm OK with that.
Maybe, but considering they're becoming very good at this and that all the remaining missions for this year may fly reusable... we could get there with 'just' 6 more flights plus the FH demo  ;)

I voted 20+.

So with 7 so far and the other 3 EXPD, it will take another 12 which includes the FH demo to get to 20 since 1 of those 14 may be an EXPD flight. Another 12 is actually currently reasonable number for the rest of the year. The turning point is when will LC-40 launch Sept? Oct? Later? The longer the pad is delayed the lower the chances of both a FH demo flight this year and for other launches a combined LC-39A and LC-40 to reach 7 launches for Aug thru Dec.

It is a wait and see on the restoration of LC-40.
