Flight tracker Twitter account Flightradar24 poked fun at the coincidence, saying: 'Would you dare to sit in row 13, on board Finnair flight 666 en route to Hel on Friday the 13th?'

Where else would it be flying, but HEL?

The final destination for passengers on this Friday the 13th flight is HEL.

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

Sadly, per Finnair, such a trip won't happen again because the airline's flight data is being reordered at the end of the month, and the flight will be renumbered as 954.

But from October 29 the service will be relabelled as AY954. If you're scared of the number 666, you may have hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. The airline declined to comment on whether the change had been made with concerned or superstitious passengers in mind.

That's the airport code for Helsinki, Finland, not the Lake of Fire.

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

The last was in January, when AY666 made a totally normal, safe landing in Helsinki, despite potentially troubling factors for those with severe superstitions, like a 13-year-old aricraft.
