How will the last ISS crew work out with the Soyuz crew size?

If I understand your question correctly, the crew size will be decided as it is now: by the available seats for the return home.

By the time ISS is retired (which could be as late as 2028), there are expected to be other crewed spacecraft with larger crew capabilities than the Soyuz also docked at the station.

Thanks. I kept trying to figure out how they would have worked it out with just a Soyuz. Forgot about the other spacecrafts.

There are six crewmembers aboard now, with two Soyuz spacecraft docked. Tomorrow, we will have three crewmembers with one Soyuz. In what way would the last flight be different?

Something else I forgot. For some reason, I keep thinking that there is only one Souyz on the ISS. Thanks
