If there was ever a flight for superstitious passengers to avoid, the Associated Press might have found it. Finnair flight AY666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki (airport abbreviation HEL) Friday may make some a little uneasy. Yes, that’s 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th. But the AP reported the flight is full and the plane’s pilot doesn’t seem too concerned.
“It has been quite a joke among the pilots” said veteran Finnair pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto, who will fly the Airbus A320. “I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me.”
Keidasto said he hopes for smooth skies and his cabin crew is “always happy to help” any anxious passengers.
