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.

An airline spokesman said Flight 666 has been making the flights to Helsinki for 11 years, and 21 of the trips took place on various Fridays the 13th.

Finnair, the Finnish flag carrier that has operated the otherwise routine Copenhagen to Helsinki route for 11 years, is renumbering its flights at the end of the month.

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

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

Your worst nightmare is about to end: today is the last time you will have to face the possibility of taking Flight 666 to HEL on Friday 13th. "It's only a coincidence for me".

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

The fear of the number 666 is hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.
