I do care about pre-boarding. Being a bulkhead fan, I need to make sure there is overhead bin space if I'm not upgraded. I do agree that the free drinks and meal is a nice 'perk', but it is not that important compared to the rest. And while mileage bonuses are nice, the 'flying experience' is what I am more interested in - check in/security, boarding and upgrades.

Depending on which alliance you have status with, and your country of residence, you may have lounge access based on status.
Example, if you have Star Alliance Gold Status, you get lounge access when flying internationally, no matter what class of service you are in. If you live in certain countries, you get lounge access whether domestic or international.
