The original plan was based on recovery starting in q1/q2 2021. That looks highly unlikely. What's in store for the CRS/pilots in general? There's been nothing reported/leaked in the Sun...

G-Alpha, I've seen the comms from both companies and I may not have quoted verbatim. That said, if you've seen the same comms i'm sure you're able to make an appropriate interpretation from my post.
