If air is too much, the enrichener won't be as rich, or rich enough for the start up mixture.
I'm not talking about air from the bowl, but air from outside the bowl. If the bowl gasket is faulty and allows too much air in via the "bowl to carb body" interface, the extra air may dilute the startup mixture, then starting can be difficult.

The blue arrows bottom left in the picture above, above the fuel take up tube, show the potential pathway of air, which should be fuel...if the gasket is faulty there, it may be the problem.
