basically it does a good job but you can influence the outcome in various ways.

if you use the options to set % to fly you can try to force it to allocate more or less planes to a particular mission than it thinks it wants to. The default is 100%, lower this and it will send less than its estimate, raise and more.

The priority you give the GS mission will encourage the AI routine to hold back more planes that it might otherwise use up in ground attack (this assumes you are not specifying which planes do which missions).

The HQ you attach the mission to may help. If you assign to say SHAEF then basically the GS will go to pretty much any battle in N France. If you pick a corps then the GS may only support a small number of attacks - those that you really see as important.

Remember also that during the overall ground movement/combat phase you can switch GS on/off - that too can help hold back planes for the key moments,

So the default rule/allocation is pretty good but you have tools to optimise if you need.
