The Ike carries a compliment
(sic) of 6,287 sailors including the air jocks and their crew.
That figure might have been the max TO when the boat was launched but there are not that many bodies on the Ike. Ships company is about 3200 with ~2000 attached to the CVW.

Where are you getting your data?
Is the navy having problems staffing its ships with qualified personnel?
