Passengers board last ever Flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th

13 October 2017

The flight departed at 1:18 p.m. local time from Copenhagen, Denmark, and landed at 3:53 at Finland's Helsinki-Vantaa airport - which has a three-letter airport code of "HEL".

The route has been regularly flown for some 11 years - though after today the airline is changing the numbers so it will no longer be known as the AY666.

That didn't stop one passenger booked on Friday's HEL-bound trip, who somewhat unluckily was given a seat on the 13th row, from missing the flight.

'As of Oct 29, some of our flight numbers in our network will change and our AY666 flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki will change to AY954.
