I don't regard myself as a superstitious person at all. I'll be flying EDI-STN on Friday the 13th Feb. I think its great, I can't wait.
Who else is flying on Friday the 13th and to where?
Does it bother you at all?
I'm not trying to start an argument here ok about being superstitious!

I have inlaws flying from MSP-IAH that day. And no it doesn't bother me. I would fly that day, sit in row 13 and depart out of gate 13 if I had to.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Whenever I have to fly, I will try to avoid the 13th of the month especially if it is friday. I aslo dont like to sit in seat 13. No speacial reason, just number 13 is not my lucky number.



Next Flight: Dec 06 PRG-WAW ATR72, Dec 07 WAW-PRG ATR42 with Czech Airlines.

What major accidents (if any) have happened on Friday, the 13th? Is there any historical reason why the 13th is a bad day for aviation?

Superstitions about the number 13 have nothing to do with aviation. It's just believed by some people as an unluckey number all together. BTW I'm not one of those people.

Interesting to see that the next Friday the 13th happens in February....with the following Monday being President's Day, that entire next week is perhaps the peak week of the Winter travel season. There will be thousands of sun-seekers departing various cold weather areas on that Friday....I wish I was one of them.  Smile

Although I'm not personally traveling on the 13th, my parents are flying from BOS to RSW that day. The funny thing is, I thought if anything it would be my mother who was upset... but it's my father (he's actually lost sleep over this from what my mother tells me) who insists they try to rebook for the 12th instead! Go figure.

What exactly is a discussion about the sense of flying on Friday 13th if it's not about being superstitious...?
