KFC has postponed its chicken sandwich launch due to adverse weather conditions. According to information on a Space Tourism website, parabolicarc.com, the CEO of worldview Jane Poynter sent in a email stating this.
Hi everyone, Just a quick update for those interested in tuning in to the live broadcast of our upcoming Stratollite launch. Weather conditions are now looking good for launch the morning of this Thursday, 6/22.
As you know, KFC (yes, Kentucky Fried Chicken… which is still funny to say) is sponsoring this mission, so they’ll be running the live broadcast feed and narration. Enjoy it and take the commentary with a fun grain of salt. But, visually speaking, this will be a fantastic opportunity for you to witness our launch operation in real time.
The final timing for launch is TBD, but the live feed will start somewhere between 3:45 am – 4:45 am PT (for all you early birds). Keep an eye on our facebook and twitter pages for real-time updates on launch timing. And save this URL, as this is where KFC will be hosting the live broadcast feed: https://yesweareactuallysendingachickensandwichto.space/.

The launch was supposed to take place today (22nd of June). Also according to the launch website, it appears that it has been moved to about 44hrs from now – as at the time of this writing.
