Flight 666 lands in HEL for last time on Friday the 13th

The flight has been making the trip from Copenhagen to Helsinki regularly, and since there's a Friday the 13th two to three times in a year, the flight number, airport code and date have matched up 21 times over 11 years, Finnair said.

If you feel like you missed out on a unique opportunity to take an "devilish" flight, rest assured, Finnair's got you covered with a flight from SIN (Singapore Changi International) to HEL.

"As of October 29, some of our flight numbers in our network will change and our AY666 flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki will change to AY954".

Still, Finnair has chose to retire the flight number.


However, the airline isn't done with eerily matched flights.

No doubt there will be an audible sigh of relief when it lands in Helsinki shortly before 4pm. Since black metal music is huge in that part of the world, the brutal flight has probably prompted more bragging rights than nervous glances among its passengers.

"It has been quite a joke among the pilots", pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto told the Associated Press in 2013. That flight has often born the number 666 and it has often traveled on various Fridays the 13th. "It's only a coincidence for me", he added. It will still keep on flying with this route number 15 more times, but just not on Friday the 13th.
