    Hi, whenever I try to apply for a refund on my tickets I get an error. It was the case last week and still exists. There is no any problem until the last section (4- to send) however once i hit the red button of "to send" I see the error of "An error occurred during processing.". Can you please take a look at that? Thank you.
