666 is Satan's number
777 is God's...

Hey Cptn....don't you get it....the devil is on that flight....666, I thought that they took those flights out of the system.....like 911 shouldn't be a flight???

Yeah, it's weird and BA have flight 1313 (ABZ-LHR). I wonder what the load factors on these flights are like on these flights...(probably OK, since they sometimes use the -400 for OK666)

Maybe you can take it and write 'Satan is my pilot' (As opposed to 'God is my co-pilot) Big grin

I'd go on those in a second. In fact, I'd love the chance to go on an "unlucky" flight.

I used to take UA666 from DEN to MLI all the time. What is the big deal with that number? 666 Fifth Avenue in NY is a fairly well know office tower.

The number 666 is about as scary as a gerbil.

I don't buy into superstisions and I don't think my relationship with God would be effected if I boarded an airliner with 666 in the reg number or a flight designated 666.

Flight 666 HVN-HEL
N666US
Row 13

mua hahahaha  Acting devilish

Whatever....I know a few people who would probably refund their ticket if that happened (it's stupid). God knows how many times I've had row 13.

Well, 666 isn't scary right NOW. But it could be later...

My lucky seat, believe it or not, is 13A. In any plane type, any airline. All of the times I fly in seat 13A, I have a good flight. SURE, it's just dumb coincidence. But it's kinda something funny to joke about. So, for my upcoming TWA flights (I mean, AA connecting in STL) I booked on 13A!!!

Yay!

Things like that happen all the time. I recently flew Continental from LGW>IAH on Friday the 13th, on Ship 13 and left from gate 13..

No big whoop

SAS actually changed the flight number on their Copenhagen-New York (EWR) route. You see it used to be SK911. Can't remember what it is now.

And for the record:
SK666 Stuttgart-Copenhagen.

The only thing scarey about that flight (and I've been on it a couple of times) is trying to check in at Prague airport in the evening - may as well take a packed lunch for the queues !!

Have to say - when I got the tickets and saw the flight number I thought 'that figures' !! Good flight though !!

A few years back, bookings were always down by about 10 per cent on Friday 13th. Don't think it happens these days.

AA737-823, a lot of airlines don't HAVE a row 13. My lucky number is 14, although I don't have a superstitious thought about flying. As long as I have a window seat and the guy next to me doesn't want to talk, I'm a happy camper.

Gerbils are scary.

I've mentioned this before, but worth another here. I flew a CVG-FWA on Friday 13th from Gate 66 seat 13A.

The "Flight from Hell" is about to be renumbered! It will change on 31st March to CSA 646.
