The vast majority of my time spent with both IL-2 and FB has been with online co-op missions built by my squadmates and me. It has been our observation that FB has been more likely to exhibit "mini screen freezes" than experienced in IL-2. I seem to recall reading that the patch was to have had some optimization of the online code. If there was any improvement, I can't say that I've seen it. The AI in FB seems more likely to collide with friendlies than it did in IL-2, possibly a sympton of the code differences. Most of my squadmates are using broadband and adsl connections with pings typically around 120ms for flights of 6 or 8 players running very respectable computer gaming systems. It is my impression that, at least for online co-op gaming, IL-2 performed better. Anyone else experience this?

Its my experience that, though lag and warping has been reduced somewhat (I can actually play 20 plr DFs now), intermittent stutter and respawn pausing has been increased considerably.

This is probably more to do with the fact that memory usage for FB is higher than IL-2, so it will make stuttering worse in general. Especially on the new maps, which are a stuttering nightmare.
