The flight landed safely in HEL on Friday the 13th with no incident — and while this wasn't the first time the unlucky numbers aligned, it will be the last. Flight 666 has been running for 11 years, gaining popularity particularly when the travel date is Friday the 13th, which already happened in January of this year.
