Would you board flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th?
For superstitious travelers, that might be tempting fate. But Finnair passengers on AY666 to Helsinki – which has the 3 letter designation HEL – don’t seem too bothered. Friday’s flight is almost full.
“It has been quite a joke among the pilots” said veteran Finnair pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto, who will fly the Airbus A320 from Copenhagen to Helsinki. “I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me.”
Those are some sane countries. Wish I lived there. Highway 666 was changed in the US based on the idea that it was cursed (and people kept stealing the awesome signs). And there are still silly superstitions about numbers.
I’d fly to Helsinki! Someone get me a ticket. Although… this is the Flight 666 I’d like to be on…
