Damage limitation when you let someone down

Don't break a commitment unless you really must. And only after you've explored alternatives. But if you must, communicate clearly and honestly about the reason for the change in plan, offering a way to make amends and suggesting an alternative solution. Recognise the inconvenience caused and minimise the damage done.
