Flight 666 takes final Friday the 13th flight to 'HEL'

Flight 666 takes final Friday the 13th flight to 'HEL'”

There's no day where superstitions come into focus more than on Friday the 13, widely considered for years and years to be the unluckiest day in the calendar year (it usually falls at least once and occasionally up to three times each year).

A GROUP of fearless plane passengers will today ignore the legend surrounding Friday the 13th to board a FINAL flight known as the 666 to Hel.

So if you're feeling a bit nervous about what the day might bring, consider the plight of passengers aboard a Finnair flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki.

However, the flight number is now being changed as part of an overall reordering of flight data by the airline.

Bold passengers will this afternoon board flight 666 to Hel on Friday the 13th.

Flight tracker Twitter account Flightradar24 poked fun at the coincidence, saying: 'Would you dare to sit in row 13, on board Finnair flight 666 en route to Hel on Friday the 13th?' The flight has fallen on Friday 13th 21 times throughout its operational history, with no reported ill effects.

Today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has made a decision to change the flight number.

The fear of "Friday the 13th" is called friggatriskaidekaphobia. I'm not a superstitious man.

The fear of the number 666 is hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

Due to depart at 1.30pm, the flight will last around an hour-and-a-half.
