The Duchess had agreed to open the airline’s luxurious new lounge in Aberdeen.

But an engine fault grounded Mr Cruz’s flight from Heathrow — and the next one left an hour late. Camilla went ahead with last Tuesday’s ceremony without Mr Cruz.

She was given a guided tour of the new lounge before unveiling a plaque.

A BA worker said it was a “bit ironic” a BA cancellation caused the boss to miss the event.
