All you superstitious Friday the 13th folks can breathe a small sigh of relief.
Flight 666, which departed on the 13th hour of Oct. 13 and headed straight for HEL (Helsinki, Finland, that is) has arrived safely and ahead of schedule.
And, according to airline Finnair, Oct. 13, 2017 would be the last time Flight AY666 would fly to HEL on Friday the 13th.
In the past 11 years, the airline has assigned the “number of the beast” to Helsinki on Friday the 13th a total of 21 times.
As the airline begins to re-number the flights, Flight 666 will soon become Flight 954.
“But remember,” the company wrote, “we still have a flight from SIN to HEL.”
