FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German airline Lufthansa <LHAG.DE> said that storm Sabine, which is expected to hit parts of Europe over the weekend with gale-force winds, will lead to flight cancellations and delays.

"In particular, from Saturday afternoon (Feb. 8) until probably Tuesday (Feb. 11) there will be flight cancellations," a group spokesman told Reuters, adding that delays were also possible.

No further details were given. Passengers are being asked to monitor for further updates, the spokesman said.
