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

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.

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

Today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has chose to change the flight number.

The flight has been a long-running source of amusement for the pilots.
