SpaceShipTwo ascent, July 2021 (Virgin Galactic) Virgin Galactic is delaying the start of commercial suborbital spaceflights again. The company said in an earnings call last week that it pushed back the start of SpaceShipTwo flights carrying paying customers from the fourth quarter of this year to the first quarter of 2023 because of supply chain problems and labor issues. The company said it expects a second vehicle, Imagine, to enter commercial service in mid-2023. A future line of vehicles, called the Delta class, will begin flights in the middle of the decade under the company's current schedule.
