I have been fling online for about 2 months now & am wondering does the performance of planes differ online as opposed to offline (same dif settings) I believe it shouldnt, but what is the reality.

I wouldn't see why. Flight dynamics are all client side.

Different clients may have different performance, however. There are server settings to limit this, and prevent cheating.

The flight models are the same for online and offline. It's been this way for some time.

The FM's are the same, but the game is complex enough that online there are some experienced people that will get more out of the plane then others. I know people that can always outturn me in the same plane and some that can outrun me all the time.

There are a lot of things to manage during fight and experience is a huge factor in getting most out of your bird.

About the cheating, as Gryphon said there are settings against that and most popular servers are good in this respect. But i wouldn't worry about it. In four years of playing this game I can't say I saw many things that I could call cheating.
I saw once during early AEP time a BF-109 G6-AS on auto pitch, with radiators open, outrun RattleCat in his K4 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif
There are some bad warps and other connection related anomalies that you find in any online game.
