That's right:

Flight 666 to HEL on Friday the 13th.

Despite being a superstitious person's worst nightmare, the flight was reported to be "almost full," said Juha-Pekka Keidasto the pilot who flew the Airbus A320 from Copenhagen to Helsinki. Keidasto also stated that he is not a superstitious man and that it was "just another flight" for him.

I'm betting he had a lucky rabbit's foot in the storage box next to him, though.

The flight arrived three minutes early in Helsinki without incident.

Better This Crowd Than That Crowd!

Somebody needs to fix this! Here, I'll ask TSA (I'm fluent in corporate bulls**tese). Ahem!

I strongly encourage the Transportation Safety Administration to explore all possible solutions for this issue. The question of what is done with sensitive travel materials after confiscation is an excellent question, and I thank you for it! I have full confidence that a solution will be reached in a timely fashion. Synergy!
