5 seats, 4 NASA crew leaving one spare. If Boeing can sell that seat then it is great way to make some extra money.

I don't understand how that will work if CST-100 is flying once every 6-12 months.

Doesn’t sound very confident of crewed flight in 2018:

Chris Ferguson, Boeing: on track do at least uncrewed CST-100 test flight next year and “ideally” crewed test flight as well. #IAC2017

And a SpaceNews article on that as well.

I would expect that space to be taken up by NASA for extra cargo transport.  Unless NanoRacks is able to finalize an agreement with the ISS partners for a NR employee slot on the station for managing their commercial airlock/payloads.

With NASA about putting their own commercial crew on the station. Raises issues about real estate etc but he's a determined guy 2/2

Shouldn't reality posts be in "Advanced concepts"?  --Nomadd
