By June 6 1944 there wasn't much of a Luftwaffe to talk about east or west. Do you know how many aircraft were available to counter the Normandy landings? 2. The few squadrons remaining were tasking with defending the Reich.
80% was slightly high, its was about about 60% with another roughly 10% in Northern Europe. The point still remains, even if they had shifted all 88 Divisions stationed in the western front and Scandinavia the result would have been the same.
