I don't have percentages, but I'm sure I can come up with a pretty good guess. I've one 96 flights in my life, and 28 of them were between New York and Switzerland. All of these were either with TWA or Swissair/Swiss. Then I have 19 flights between Switzerland and Athens, all of which are with Crossair/Swiss, except for the occasional Olympic flight. I also have 13 flights between New York and Athens, a third of which were with TWA (until they ended service to ATH) and the remaining are mostly Delta, with some OA flights in there, too.
So I'd say, overall, my most commonly used airlines are SR/LX, TWA, and DL. For the remaining 36 flights, somewhere around 10 are with CO, which is by far my most common within the USA.

I fly all of my Tucson to California flights on WN.
My second airline is AA and partners (Mexicana) for some domestic and international.
I have about 26, 00 on CO from some trips on CO and AW. I often make purchases to gain CO miles to work towards in Central America award.

My loyalty is to the £ - whichever is cheapest, or the most value for money.
I'll take everything into consideration (getting to airport, buying food etc) and allow a premium for convenience.
Therefore, whilst I'll prefer KLM out of Norwich, and do fly them occasionally, often Ryanair wins out.

Air Southwest; 19.3% - I'm probably the most loyal to this carrier, not versus another airline, but against the option of taking a train or coach, or driving to wherever I need to go. They serve a niche market, but to be honest, if there was another airline offering cheaper flights on their routes, then I would probably switch as there fares go up nearly monthly.
Iberia; 11.7% - used to be 100% loyal to this airline when flying UK-MAH, via BCN or MAD. Then their service deteriorated to that of a not so good LCC, and the final straw was when they pulled out of the BCN-MAH route, leaving me no reason to continue flying with them. Last IB flight was well over a year ago now, none booked either as the likes of Air Europa and the other LCC's are just so much cheaper.
KLM; 10.1% - formally the only carrier offering worldwide connections from BRS, thus saving a 5/6 hour coach journey to LHR. Now though there is AF, LH, and SAS, plus I rarely fly from BRS these days, so only if I fancy a few hours in AMS will I fly them now, normally from BHX. Still am Sky Gold with them, but rarely fly them these days.
The rest of the time that I fly, I'd rather chose other airlines which I have yet to fly, it makes the trips more interesting I find.

Not loyal to any airline: it'd be highly boring for me to continually fly the same carrier. Don't care about frequent-flyer crap. I find it far more fun and worthwhile to, where possible, fly as many new airlines as possible, particularly when combined with getting on a new aircraft or visiting a new airport or both.

Used to fly AB a lot from AMS, when they still operated to TXL (with Scandinavian connections from there)...
Since they only operate to PMI now, I barely fly them anymore; still a lot of TopBonus miles in my account for redemption
Long-haul I have flown quite a lot with QR: one more long-haul return flight with them, and I'm a Silver Member with their Privilege scheme...
My Star-Alliance miles are mostly earned on Bmi, and fly them regularly to/from LHR...also, their Diamond Club has occasionally very good offers (mileage or discount)...
So, short-haul - Star Alliance (Bmi)
Long-haul - Privilege (Qatar)

In my case, Northwest has nearly 60% of my flying, with American also having a rather good size chunk of my flying. Usually those are the two I use the most, especially Northwest. If I can't get Northwest, then I go for American. One of the two usually always have the good schedules, and for that matter good service to me, never had porblems with either carrier.

I was a huge AS supporter/frequent flyer. But now that AS has not been doing well in the customer service department, I have switched most of my flying on F9 as much as possible. I only fly on AS if I really have to, even though I have miles on them.
Now, Im starting to become a WN frequent flyer. So its WN and F9 the most.

For our annual flight to Norway from Australia, we fly Singapore Airlines. However, we do go Emirates a couple times, if the price is right. Other than that, there isn't too much choice, TG has very bad prices on the net here, CX is too much of a detour, we do not like the service on QF long-haul, MH is not a member of any alliance and we like FF points (especially Star). In Australia, we would like to travel DJ the most, but we do fly JQ and QF just as much.
If airlines such as QR and EY came to PER, there would be a lot more competition for our money.
