United Airlines flight experiences extreme turbulence, 'entire flight threw up'

John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, and Washington Dulles have issued ground stops for flights arriving during the storm.

Passengers on a plane that flew through stormy weather Friday had a stomach-turning flight. The nor'easter has brought heavy winds, sleet, and rain in its wake, and FlightAware.com reported that more than 3,000 flights have been canceled and 4,800 delayed.

It's true 1 by 1 we all started getting sick. "PILOTS WERE ON THE VERGE OF THROWING UP", the pilot's report to the National Weather Service read.

Another seconded the pilot's record, writing, "My entire flight threw up while trying to land in DC because of the Philly weather".

Winter Storm Riley has forced a number of airlines to cancel flights and comp passengers this weekend coming to and from the east coast.

Fortunately, there were no significant incidents, severe sickness or injuries that occurred on the flight and the plane was able to land safely at Dulles, according to a spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said. "No customers required medical attention because of the turbulence".

Delta, Southwest, JetBlue and American were allowing travelers to change their Friday and Saturday flights to avoid delays and cancellations.

Perhaps it was the small size of the jet that caused it to be rocked especially hard by the storm.

The nor'easter slamming the East Coast has caused thousands of flights to be canceled across the country.
