That flight has often born the number 666 and it has often traveled on various Fridays the 13th.

Friday marked the very last time the notorious Finnair Flight 666 took off from Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH), and flew directly to Helsinki, Finland (HEL), on Friday the 13th - something that's happened only 21 times since the spooky flight made its devilish debut 11 years ago.

What's more, the flight departed 20 minutes after the 13 hour of the day, but today's flight will be the last of 21 times FinnAir has flown the route on Friday 13 since 2006. Friday the 13th is known as an unlucky day in Western culture, so mix that with the Mark of the Beast and you could end up with some pretty uncomfortable passengers, especially since the flight goes straight to HEL. AY666 flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki will change to the less ominous AY954.

Lavrov says Tehran abides by all commitments on Iran nuclear deal
Trump is expected to decline this week to certify Iran's compliance in the 2015 agreement, referring it to Congress . But it could be hard to get both Iran and its ally, Russia, back to the table for a new round of talks.

The airline has 15 more scheduled trips for Flight 666 before the flight number is retired on October 29.

However, jesters and credulous folk can still get their kicks on another flight going from SIN to HEL - Singapore to Helsinki.

"It has been quite a joke among the pilots" veteran Finnair pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto told the Associated Press in 2013, ahead of another Friday the 13th flight. If you're scared of the number 666, you may have hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. "It's only a coincidence for me", he added.
