A BRITISH Airways boss was left embarrassed when a fault with one of his planes meant he missed a meeting with the Duchess of Cornwall.
Chief executive Alex Cruz was stranded and unable to host Camilla at an airline function.

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.
