I wanted to print the tag name after <Transaction> in the attached file. That is I wanted to print "AirAvailability_12". I did the following

awk '
BEGIN {
FS="[<>]";
n=0;
}
{
   if ( $2 == "Transaction") n=1;
   if ( n == 2 ) {
   print $2;
   exit;
   }
   if ( n == 1) n++;
}'

This works in s.txt  but not s1.txt (both files attached).

Any thoughts? Appreciate if someone points something I am missing.
s.txt
s1.txt
