Would You Take Flight 666 To HEL On Friday The 13th?

by -

Those of us who are not superstitious can take Finnair flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th this coming October from Copenhagen!


Seems that the flight is still mostly empty (not a surprise) but the window seats on the row 13 have been taken (someone must be thinking the same as I). I decided to go for the first row though.

The previous AY666 Friday the 13th flight to HEL got quite a few mentions in the media and decided that perhaps I should take it sometime.

I am not superstitious at all and have flown to HELsinki many times over the years, although not on a flight 666 or Friday the 13th.

    Of course! for my co-nationals Friday, the 17th is the bad one;)
    Speaking seriously I also noticed that the planes are usually emptier on the 13th and, at least in the US, on 9/11

    • And 14 supposedly sounds bad for Chinese (means death). Planes and hotels then should not have floors/rows 13, 14, and 17!

    Row 13, pl.!

    Thx for the laugh, John. Good one!

    … and don’t forget that arriving on flight 666, at HEL you can easily connect to SIN 🙂

    Without a doubt I would take this flight (if needed) without worries. “You are nineteen times safer in a plane than in a car. Every single time you step on a plane, no matter how many times you fly, you are nineteen times less likely to die than in your car.”

    I actually have flown this flight many times and once on Friday the 13th 🙂 Allways makes me smile

  • Paul LoBo

    I’ll be on that flight!

    • The row 13 is almost full. I may have scheduling conflict that prevents me taking this flights. Will know more in late September/early October.
