3 - Let them explain the situation, and ensure that you appear empathetic as they describe it. Apologise and tell them that you understand their annoyance.

With this information you can make an informed decision as to whether to re-schedule the appointment, or whether the engineer can still make it.
6 - Convey the results of your phone call with the engineer. If the appointment is to be re-scheduled, apologise and provide the customer with a complaints procedure if needed. If the appointment will continue as planned, apologise for the delay thus far, and if possible provide the customer with a direct number to call in the event of any further delay.
