As was said earlier, play with the number of Air Sortie cards you have available. It seems pretty straightforward (to me) when told to play with 1 2, or 3 airpacks that would imply 2, 4, or 6 Air Sortie cards.

This also implies this rule is flexible. Just agree with your opponent and its not going to make much difference one way or the other. Small changes in Memoir '44 rules really do not have that much impact.

Personally, I play with 4 Air Sorties in the OL deck because the deck is twice as large (as we do for breakthrough). The fact that 4 Air Sorties comes with the Operation Overlord expansion is also pretty conclusive this is the optimal number.

As for playing with multiple air packs, if you have only one airpack but choose to include 4 or 6 Air Sortie cards, you can always allow players to use ANY airplane figure to represent whichever airplane is needed, thus allowing multiple spitfires etc. with different figures. That is, the figure does not have to match the actual plane a player is flying. You could also use any other handy object to represent the planes (rocks, coins, erasers, mickey mouse action figures, etc.).

With Memoir '44 its best to loosen up and get comfortable making house rules when necessary and modifying scenario rules (shuffle "both" Air Sortie cards becomes shuffle "all"). Its not a simulation or anything close.
