Well, I'm a passenger only and not too much of a regular, but I fly a lot more than most people I know. Typically take 10 or so round trips per year, comprising of as many flights as possible. Airlines vary, such as FR, LH, CA, but most include sectors on either Air Southwest or Iberia. Hoping to take a few more this year.
Edit- forgot to add airlines.

What do you consider frequent flying? Once a week? More often? Less often? How about long trip, i.e., over 4 hours, vs shorter trips?
As far as I'm concerned, I fly at least twice a week, normally short trips, but several times a year fly overseas or to the US west coast. I try and fly either Northwest or KLM, but fairly often fly Delta, Continental, or a Mexican/Canadian airline. I do avoid US air and AA air at all costs

hmm, i never paid much attention to it, but i fly typically four to six segments each month. if domestic it is eclusively on AA, but if to LHR mostly on VS. i dont take many trips to asia...just too long of a trip, whereas a trip to london is the perfect weekend getaway.

I completed 10 international segments last year, but only 2 the year before that.
It varies, but I take SQ/Star Alliance longhaul, and whichever has the cheapest fare shorthaul.
I'm planning on repeating or bettering that figure this year.

Hey DTWClipper -- not a competition here, just informational. Only reason I'm curious is there are so many people on here who know so much, yet I suspect there are also many who are 'arm chair' flyers. Don't you feel the same way?

About 10-8 times a year. Not to bad. Well used to fly ATA to MDW once a year but now will have to fly WN to MDW or AA or ORD. Fly AA most of the time. JFK/LGA is my most popular destination. Also fly to Nassau Bahamas alot. Fly Chalks when I do that. International flights I will use AA and partners most of the time. Last flight was MIA-EZE-MIA! 777! For example 04-05 Chalks FLL-PID-FLL
AA MIA-LGA-MIA AA MIA-JFK-MIA AA MIA-EZE-MIA AA MIA-BOS-MIA AA or WN MIA/FLL-MDW/ORD. Than will fly UA or AA MIA-SFO-MIA.
