Flight tracking account Flightradar24 also poked fun at the coincidence, tweeting: "Would you dare to sit in row 13, on board Finnair flight 666 en route to Hel on Friday the 13th?"

For the most superstitious among us, Friday 13 is a day to be avoided.

Plane passengers dubbed "the bravest in the world" will this afternoon board flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th.

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

It is the last time Finnair will use the flight number - which is as the "number of the beast" is associated with the Devil.

"We're growing, so we need more flight numbers." the company explained via Twitter.

From 29 October, the flight will be renamed AY954.

In fact, one player feels so strong about what his protest stands for that he'd be willing to leave the league. As minorities, what do you want to happen before we say anything? It's your right to stand or sit down.


But the airline is changing some of its flight numbers meaning this is the last time flight FY666 will depart on the "unlucky" day.

The flight started 11 years ago and has fallen on Friday the 13th 21 times with no reported ill effects.

The flight has landed on Friday 13 a total of 21 times.

A fear of the number 13 has been given the scientific name triskaidekaphobia, with a fear of Friday 13th dubbed paraskevidekatriaphobia.

Pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto once said: "It has been quite a joke among the pilots".

Finnair insists it isn't scrapping the spooky number because of fears from superstitious customers.
