The pilot's report, shared by the National Weather Service Aviation Weather Center, said "pretty much everyone on the plane threw up."

The report said even the "pilots were on the verge of throwing up."

"The aircraft landed safely and taxied to its gate," United said in a statement provided to The Washington Post. "No customers required medical attention because of the turbulence."

More than 3,000 flights were canceled and another 4,800 were delayed Friday as a result of the nor'easter storm.
